Lee Jae-do (180cm, G) was in charge of the last.
Changwon LG defeated Wonju DB 76-74 in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball regular league held at Changwon Indoor Gymnasium on the 3rd. The season’s first 4 home wins in a row. March 26, 2022 4 home wins in a row in 314 days since the Seoul SK match. In addition, with 24 wins and 13 losses, it maintained a two-game gap with Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation (26 wins and 11 losses).
Lee Jae-do is a point guard that combines stability and offense. In the 2020-2021 season, he was the main character of ‘PERFECT 10’ along with Byun Jun-hyung (185cm, G) – Jeon Seong-hyun (188cm, F) – Moon Seong-gon (195cm, F) – Oh Se-geun (200cm, C). He was a member of ‘the first 10-game winning streak in KBL history’.
There is another strength of Lee Jae-do. he is durable Lee Jae-do has played 372 regular league games in a row from the 2014-2015 season to the present (excluding the period of military service and selection for the national team).
LG, which recruited Lee Jae-do, has a clear backcourt combination called ‘Lee Jae-do-Lee Kwan-hee’. However, throughout the 2021-2022 season, the power of the backcourt combination was not shown. Both Lee Jae-do and Lee Kwan-hee failed to show their worth.
It had to be different in the 2022-2023 season. Lee Jae-do also recognized that. So he was responsible for a lot of matches. He had a lot of games that went well, but a lot of games that didn’t.
The same goes for DB. He needs to gain the upper hand in a fight with Ethan Albano (185cm, G). You have to block the DB’s various front lines with other colleagues.
However, Lee Jae-do did 메이저놀이터 not use much power in the first quarter. I was pushed back in the speed fight with the DB guard, and I couldn’t even put the jumper with the rim. He didn’t show much power on defense either. The playing time for the first quarter was only 3 minutes and 55 seconds.
LG used various lineups to overcome the sluggishness. But it seldom worked. In the end, reliable resources were invested. Lee Jae-do was one of them. Lee Jae-do, who experienced inferiority in the first quarter, touched the ball more reliably. His thorough under-the-goal strategy laid the foundation for LG’s upward trend.
Thanks to this, LG started the third quarter with a tie (36-36). At the beginning of the 3rd quarter, I was pushed by DB, but Lee Jae-do made a reversal flow. He made 4 points in a row by breaking through, and 3 minutes and 44 seconds before the end of the 3rd quarter, he helped Yoon Won-sang (181cm, G) score 3 points after 2-2. Yoon Won-sang also made an additional free throw on the play, so Lee Jae-do’s pass was of great significance.
When Lee Jae-do formed the starting point, LG also went out. 3 minutes and 34 seconds before the end of the third quarter, they led 49-44. Although he committed a turnover due to DB’s defensive change, he spent most of his time stably. 4 assists in the 3rd quarter alone. He had the most assists in the 3rd quarter among players on both teams. It also contributed to LG’s 5-point advantage (59-54).
LG was pushed 73-74 by DB’s pursuit. Nevertheless, Lee Jae-do boldly tried the dribble jumper. This was a come-from-behind score (75-74).
The remaining time is 1 minute and 28 seconds. Also, Lee Jae-do blocked DB’s attack with the last defense. LG used Lee Jae-do’s jumper and defense as a stepping stone to keep the final 1 minute and 28 seconds. He finished the game with 10 points, 7 assists, 3 rebounds and 2 steals. It gave the home fans ‘the first 4 home wins of the season’. It was a possible achievement because there was Lee Jae-do’s hidden competitive instinct.
