Commentator Lee Kyu-seop’s words had clear grounds.
Seoul SK won 77-72 in the 3rd game of the 2022-23 SKT Adot Pro Basketball Round of 6 playoff against Jeonju KCC held at Jeonju Indoor Gymnasium on the 7th, and succeeded in advancing to the semifinals with all three wins.
Even SK could not easily adapt to the enthusiasm of passionate Jeonju fans. KCC, which ran forward through that atmosphere, was strong and was pushed back by 16 points at one point.
However, SK had Jamil Warney. He played 37 minutes and 6 seconds from the 1st quarter to the 4th quarter, dominating La Gunah and Dion Thompson. His record for the day was 30 points, 13 rebounds and 2 assists. dominated the game.
KCC mobilized many methods to stop Warney. When Laguna was pushed back, Thompson was put in. It worked for a while in the 2nd quarter. Warney also made mistakes against Thompson’s tight defense and teammates’ help defense. However, to stop Warney, you have to concentrate for 40 minutes. He finally penetrated KCC’s small defense loophole and scored a lot in every quarter.
Warney’s ‘that shot’ floater was in full swing. Even though KCC’s defense was very solid, his plotters did not fail. Regarding Warney’s floater, Kim Seon-hyung said, “Other players say that if you get hit by Warney’s floater, you lose more energy than conceding.” As he said, every time Warney’s ‘shot’ passed the rim, KCC’s morale was greatly reduced.
Warney was also the one who brought the atmosphere given to KCC. When domestic players faltered, he continued to fight for balance, consistently scoring goals. In particular, he obtained fouls and free throws through bold rim attacks. In other words, narrowing the score gap without spending time. It was a part where you could know Warnie’s BQ. 스포츠토토
Warney had already done his part in the last 1 and 2 games with 26 points, 12 rebounds and 3 assists, and 20 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists, respectively. Because of him, who was never pushed back while facing two foreign players, Laguna and Thompson, SK was also able to succeed in advancing to the semifinals for two consecutive seasons in nine years.
What I look forward to more is War in the quarterfinals. After losing Asem Marey, Changwon LG replaced aggressive foreign player Reggie Perry. His offense is definitely among the top in the KBL, but his defense is more of a question mark. He is the type of foreign player Warney likes to play against the most.
He wasn’t even tired. SK coach Jeon Hee-chul expressed confidence, saying, “Warney says he has a lot of playing time, but now he says he wants to play more.” War’s body has already adapted to playing in the second half of the 30s this season.
Commentator Kyu-seop Lee asked, “I met Jameel Warney, what are you going to do?” Warney now is such a terrifying player that he has to run away when he meets him.
