’14 Point Explosion’ SK Choi Boo-gyeong, “I’m happy to pay for the loss in the last Carrot match”
“It feels good to pay back what I suffered (in the last game)”
Seoul SK won 82-80 in a match against Goyang Carrot in the 4th round of the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium on the 23rd. The season record was 19 wins and 14 losses. It was tied for third place with Ulsan Hyundai Mobis.
Choi Bu-kyung (200cm, F) and Jamil Warney (200cm, F) led SK to victory. In 30 minutes, he recorded 14 points, 4 rebounds and 1 assist. In the 4th quarter, Altoran scored the same score.
At the press conference after the game, Choi Bu-gyeong said, “The opponent’s game started really well. It wasn’t that we didn’t do well. It wasn’t broken at all. We rearranged our minds and played as we practiced. Then the game worked out well. We were beaten badly in the last confrontation. Carrot is a team that somehow manages to shoot 3-point shots. Even if they allow 3-point shots, making them as difficult as possible was effective. It feels good to pay back what they suffered.”
“When I meet Carrot, I play switch defense. It’s awkward when I block a shooter like Jeon Seong-hyun. I have to do the defense I didn’t do. I do the moves I didn’t do. I don’t do defense alone. I move as a team. I believe in the player behind me.” he explained. 토토사이트
Choi Bu-kyung showed his influence in the attack that day. He also liked working with Warnie.
“I made a good attack behind a good defense. The players gave me a good pass. It worked in a chain. I actively tried an early offense,” he said, “but it is not easy for the opposing team to block (Jamil) Warney one-on-one. My defense “I went to trap Warney. I played mainly with low cuts. Even if I didn’t have a chance to score, I tried not to let Warney go to the help defense.”
Choi Bu-gyeong was blocked by Jonathan Alledge (205cm, F) in the third quarter. But he paid back with a dunk after 1:30.
“I thought a lot when I was blocked by Alledge. I usually play the next game quickly. I could have avoided getting a blocked shot if I took a one-tempo break. Rather, that scene calmed me down. I played calmly,” he said.
Lastly, “Our squad is old. The sixth man is composed mainly of veterans. There are only a few young players. Nevertheless, the harmony is good. Only when the performance is good, the coach can adjust the playing time. In the last match against KT, we allowed a chase. “I will make sure that there will be no such games in the future. We must all focus.”
