KCC defeated Suwon KT 90-73 in the first away game of the 2023-2024 CheongKwanJang Professional Basketball Championship (4 wins out of 7) held at Suwon KT Arena in Gyeonggi-do on the 27th.

KCC, which was slightly behind at 39-41 in the first half, quickly gained momentum in the early third quarter with 15 consecutive points from Heo Woong, Song Kyo-chang, and Choi Jun-yong.

KT started to catch up late with Heo Hoon's outside shot and an additional free throw, but La Gun-ah immediately responded with a 3-pointer and poured cold water on them, and in the 4th quarter, Alize DeShawn Johnson's outside shot 3 minutes and 19 seconds before the end made a 21-point lead.

We drove a wedge into victory.

KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin said, “The plan to try to win the game in the 3rd and 4th quarters worked out well.

“Our defense was well organized, and we scored a lot of fast breaks,” he said.

“As soon as we were down 0-4 in the first quarter, we immediately used strategy time to address the loose defense and break the opponent's spirit,” he said, adding that he wanted to keep the momentum going in the championship game.

The importance of flow was emphasized below :

Busan KCC Coach Jeon Chang-jin = I said we would look at the game in the 3rd and 4th quarters, and it seems to have worked out well.

I saw KT use a lot of power in the 1st and 2nd quarters.

In the 3rd quarter, I think we were able to score a lot of fast breaks as our defense worked well.

The importance of physical strength distribution was revealed, and the importance of two-point plays was also recognized again.

He took action right away when he was down 0-4 in the first quarter.

I think this is the first time in my career as a director that I have been able to get the operation time so quickly.

Perhaps because we played after resting for 6 days, our defense wasn't at all what we expected, and we played loosely, which was pointed out right away.

In a championship game, it takes more time to regain momentum and flow if you lose it, but in order to break the opponent's spirit, we called strategy time quickly.

I am 100% satisfied that Bass (who went to the bench) came back right away for using the drop zone defense in the second quarter.

It was good to be able to use up Bath's stamina, and I think this part led to the 3rd and 4th quarters.

Suwon KT Coach Song Young-jin = I think the team collapsed at once in the early third quarter and it turned out to be a bad result.

I think there is also a physical aspect to it.

After getting caught in transition a few times in the beginning, I felt like I lost focus and my mood sank.

I think we need to calm down (preparing for the second game) and have a more focused defense.

We must attack with the mindset of raising our concentration and activity level to 120% compared to the regular season.

Since Bath was in good condition, we tried to let them play a little longer, but as the atmosphere calmed down in the third quarter, their defense completely collapsed.
