Professional basketball’s Anyang Jungkwanjang snapped a seven-game losing streak thanks to a clutch performance from guard Park Ji-hoon. On the same day, Goyang Sono won the game thanks to a steady stream of three-pointers from domestic players. Meanwhile, top teams Changwon LG and Wonju DB drank the bitter pill.

The DBs won their 2023-24 regular season home game against LG 84-80 at 7 p.m. on Feb. 2 at Anyang Indoor Gymnasium.

Chung Kwan-jang 안전카지노사이트 has lost seven straight games since Dec. 18, sending them to the bottom of the standings. A tough schedule and a string of injuries have made it difficult for the team to play evenly.

Up until the first half of the game, it looked like the losing streak would continue. The team outrebounded LG, who were without Asem Marei, but were hampered by poor shooting. LG, on the other hand, ended the first half with a 43-37 lead, with Juan Tello and Yang Hong-seok leading the offense.

In the third quarter, Yang Hong-seok’s scoring show continued. He scored 10 points, including two three-pointers, in the first 10 minutes of the third quarter, extending the lead to 14 points at one point.

But Jung Kwan-jang had Park Ji-hoon, who quickly tied the game with seven points and two assists in the first 2:58. LG responded with baskets from Justin Gutang and Lee Jae-do, but Park rekindled the fire. He hit a free throw with 1:25 left to close the gap, and then scored a daring breakaway layup on the final two possessions to crawl back into the game. LG bowed to Park’s one-man show in the fourth quarter.

Park finished with 24 points, three assists, and two steals in 33 minutes and eight seconds on the night. He scored 15 of his points in the fourth quarter alone to help his team break the losing streak. Jung Hyo-geun (14 points) and Lee Jong-hyun (11 points, 12 rebounds) also contributed. With the win, seventh-ranked Jung Kwanjang improved to 11-0 (18-0) and closed the gap on sixth-ranked Busan KCC to 1.5 games.

LG was led by Yang Hong-seok’s 21 points, including three 3-pointers, but was hampered by poor shooting in the decisive fourth quarter. They also lost the rebounding battle (28-39) due to the absence of Marei. LG lost its 10th game of the season (18), dropping to fourth place.

Meanwhile, the away team had the last laugh when DB and Sono met at Wonju General Gymnasium on the same day. Sono faced off against No. 1 DB and won 94-88. It was their fourth win in four meetings. At the same time, it snapped a two-game losing streak. Sono improved to 10 wins (18 losses) and remained in eighth place. DB lost their sixth game in a row (23 points), ending their five-game winning streak.

Sono’s three-point shooting was on fire from the first quarter. Kim Min-wook poured in 11 points with three 3-pointers and a 100 percent field goal percentage. In the second half, Korean players showed off their hot fingertips, with Han Ho-bin scoring 14 points, including four three-pointers. Sono knocked down 17 three-pointers on the day, topping the No. 1 DB. The team shot 40 percent from three-point range.

Han Ho-bin recorded a double-double of 16 points and 10 assists, while Kim Kang-sun (16 points), Kim Min-wook (14 points) and Park Jong-ha (13 points and 4 steals) chipped in. Chinanu Onuaku also smiled in the battle for the boards with 20 points and 15 rebounds.

DB kept chipping away at the deficit, but Dedrick Lawson picked up his fourth foul early in the fourth quarter. To add insult to injury, Lee Albano was injured midway through the third quarter. He returned to the court in the fourth quarter, but his limp made it difficult for him to play at full strength. ‘Captain’ Kang Sang-jae made a last-ditch effort, but he too went down with five fouls in the fourth quarter.

DB had a tough game with Kang Sang-jae (21 points), Lawson (20 points), Kim Jong-kyu (16 points), Albano (11 points), and Doo Kyung-min (12 points), but they committed 19 turnovers.
