It was KT’s flow from the beginning. Samsung, which had a change in power, such as replacing all foreign players during the break and returning injured players, emphasized a quick transition offense, but was pushed back by KT’s momentum.
KT started the game with Ha Yoon-ki’s free throw and Han Hee-won’s consecutive goals, and Jones and Yang Hong-seok’s 3-point shot and Ha Yoon-ki’s goal scored widened the score gap. Four 3-pointers were fired in the first quarter alone, and they harassed Samsung inside and outside. With Ha Yoon-ki’s buzzer beater, KT already took a 29-12 lead in the first quarter.
But the momentum didn’t last long. KT retired to the bench with Ha Yoon-gi committing 3 fouls early in the 2nd quarter. A change has occurred in the flow. Unlike the first quarter, the offense was not easily solved. He messed up and missed a free throw.
In the end, he allowed Samsung to pursue. Willis, who did not live up to Yatoo’s expectations, narrowed the gap by scoring. KT, who was on the defensive with a series of turnovers, was chased by 35-30.
KT regained the 10-point gap with Yang Hong-seok’s quick attack and Sean Dave Ildefonso’s 3-point shot, but Kim Si-rae scored a buzzer beater and finished the first half with 44-36.
Losing the good flow in the beginning, KT suffered from Samsung’s relentless pursuit.
At the start of the 3rd quarter, Lee Ho-hyun scored in a row, and Willis’ 3-point shot narrowed the gap to 1 point. KT ran away with Lester Prosper’s goal in the paint zone and Kim Dong-wook’s 3-point shot. Samsung gained strength with Kim Si-rae’s consecutive goals, but Kim Dong-wook succeeded in making a 3-point shot again and kept the lead.
KT, who had maintained a lead of around 7 points, found some leeway with Yang Hong-seok’s consecutive goals and Jones’ footback scoring. In the middle of the 4th quarter, the score difference was double digits again.
Lee Jung-hyun’s 3-point shot came out, but the flow did not change. Samsung did not have enough time to turn the game around, and KT, who took several offensive opportunities with rebounds, scored another victory with Kim Dong-wook making another decisive 3-point shot.
