Kim Dong-wook helped the team win by scoring at important moments.
Suwon KT met Seoul Samsung in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball regular season game held at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium on the 19th and won 77-66.
From the first quarter, KT succeeded in suppressing the baseline with a quick attack and sticky defense. The first quarter ended 29-12. However, as time passed, they allowed chase, and at 4 minutes and 10 seconds from the start of the 3rd quarter, they were chased by 1 point.
In response, KT manager Seo Dong-cheol put in veteran Kim Dong-wook (194cm, F). And it worked. After Kim Dong-wook was put in, he accurately recognized his own role and digested the role of lubricant for the team. 4 minutes and 36 seconds before the end of the third quarter, a 3-point shot was added to make it 51-45. After Kim Dong-wook was put in, KT widened the score again. And Kim Dong-wook added another 3-point shot to make it 60-53.
Kim Dong-wook continued to play an active part in the 4th quarter. He was not visible, but as a veteran, he communicated with his teammates and led the team’s attack. 1 minute and 8 seconds before the end of the game, he succeeded in a 3-point shot and completely cut off the opponent’s pursuit.
Kim Dong-wook, who we met after the game, said, “I had a streak, but before the break, I lost and entered the break. He prepared for a change in offense during the break. Even though it didn’t come out 100%, it came out good in defense. And it’s approval that he opened up the score early in the game,” he said overall.
Then, when asked about the team’s performance in the first quarter, Kim Dong-wook said, “I didn’t play, but from the bench, the players’ movement, shooting, and defense were all good. Conversely, the Samsung players lost their balance in the beginning. If I had carried this flow to the end, it would have been an easy game, but I lost my concentration and played an unfortunate game.” 슬롯사이트
When asked if the director had made a special order to Kim Dong-wook, he said, “Actually, the director doesn’t say much anymore. I just look at it from the bench and think. Today, I took the 4th seat instead of (Ha) Yoongi. I thought the coach wanted a two-on-two attack with the guards, so I tried to play that role by communicating more.”
And, “I don’t play a lot. I cannot physically run much. (Laughter) Still, when I have to cut off the opponent’s flow while watching the flow, I go more aggressive. I try to be confident and responsible. And I think I will make it so that other players can have good chances.”
Finally, “And (Jeong) Seong-woo, (Yang) Hong-seok and other players were so good that I won. Everyone confidently did their best until the end,” and ended the interview showing their love for juniors.
