KT drops home opener to Jeonggwanjang.
The Suwon KT Sonic Boom lost 59-63 against the Anyang Jeonggwanjang Red Boosters in the 2023-2024 Korean Basketball Association regular season at the Suwon KT Sonic Boom Arena on Monday.
“We couldn’t continue our good start,” KT head coach Song Young-jin summarized.
“It’s just that once we start making turnovers one after the other, they keep coming. It’s hard to get back the momentum once you give it to the opponent.” 토스카지노 주소
KT was led by Paris Bass, who scored 28 points in 35 minutes and 53 seconds of action, but was unable to lead the team to victory. Overall, the scoring distribution seemed to favor Bass. Head coach Song Young-jin had no regrets about the performance of his domestic players.
“Later on, we had to limit (the scoring) to Bass. In the beginning, we were playing organically, but after the gap widened, there was a sense of laxity in our defense,” he said.
“I felt like it was a one-and-done. Turnovers and tough shots led to a lot of fast breaks and I think the players lost confidence as the game went on. We need to get some scoring from our domestic players, and that’s not a homework assignment.”
KT was also disappointing on defense, committing 17 turnovers.
“I think the players got a little bit relaxed as the score gap widened. We lost offensive rebounds and gave the ball to the opponent when we had loose balls. Apart from the players who were substituted, I think there was also a physical burden because the players who were playing were not fully fit. In the end, I think it was a difference in concentration.” He concluded the interview.
