Jeong In-deok, the hidden protagonist of LG’s come-from-behind victory
“Jeong In-deok goes in knowing what his role is. He doesn’t want pick games or stuff like that, he wants defense and rebounds.”
Changwon LG overturned their 17-point inferiority and won 76-74 against Wonju DB held at the Changwon Gymnasium on the 3rd. With this victory, he continued his upward trend by running the season and winning 4 consecutive wins at home. It was a meaningful win that matched the home winning rate of 50%.
However, the process was difficult. From the start of the game, the initiative was lost to DB due to mistakes and uneasy field goals. At one point in the second quarter, the score was 19-36, 17 points.
Like the game against Seoul SK, LG overturned another 17-point inferiority and won a thrilling come-from-behind victory. 메이저사이트
Yoon Won-sang (18 points, 5 3-point shots) who turned the game around with 3-point shots, Kim Jun-il (17 points, 5 rebounds) and Asem Marey (15 points, 17 rebounds) who gave strength from the height, Lee Jae-do (10 points, 3 rebounds), the protagonist of the final score 7 assists and 2 steals) stood out.
Indeok Jeong cannot be left out here. Jeong In-deok ran for 30 minutes and 49 seconds, the second longest after Lee Jae-do, who played at 31 minutes and 11 seconds. It is the second time since his debut that Indeok Jeong has played for more than 30 minutes. The first one ran for 32 minutes and 30 seconds in a confrontation with Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation on December 24 last year.
The reason Jeong In-deok played more than other games was for Kang Sang-jae’s defense. Kang Sang-jae scored 17 points that day, but the field goal success rate was 36.8%.
After winning the day, LG coach Cho Sang-hyun said, “The thing derived from Kang Sang-jae’s post was entrusted with a one-on-one defense while playing a deny defense. There are not more than 10 or 20 points, but only 1 or 2. I was told to only break the balance, but the defense went well in that area.” I don’t play pick games or anything like that and hope for defense and rebounding. When the tall lineup comes out, SK plays its role enough to put Choi Jun-yong on the defensive,” he praised Jeong In-deok.
Jeong In-deok recorded 5 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal that day. The 5 points came in the 2nd quarter when LG was playing a frustrating game. In particular, the 3-point play that became the starting point of 17 points in a row from 19-36 came from Jeong In-deok’s hand.
The mere number may be small, but the value was more than that.
Director Cho Sang-hyun said, “Indeok says he is desperate, but his (skills) are improving little by little, and his eyes are open to watching basketball. He hoped that he would play his part with more confidence.”
Jeong In-deok only played for a total of 18 minutes and 6 seconds in six games last season. He is averaging 12 minutes and 54 seconds this season.
Jung In-deok, who was able to catch the basketball again as a forward reinforcement, is now establishing himself as an indispensable resource in LG.
