Heo Il-young is a KBL-proven shooter. After he moved to SK, he doesn’t play a lot of time, but the amount of time he plays gives trouble to the opponent’s defense. It is also a card that makes up for the poor shooting of Choi Won-hyeok (182cm, G) – Choi Seong-won (184cm, G) – Oh Jae-hyun (185cm, G).
Heo Il-young, who was put in 3 minutes and 38 seconds before the end of the first quarter, moved to the left wing after using the ball-free screen. Kim Seon-hyung (187cm, G), who was in the tower, passed to Heo Il-young. Heo Il-young opened the game with 3 points. Even after that, he shook LG’s sticky defense with 3 points.
The check against Heo Il-young was strong, but Heo Il-young did not care. Attach the body of the opponent’s defense and jumper.

However, LG was not easily swayed. This is because domestic one-two punch Lee Jae-do (180cm, G) and Lee Kwan-hee (191cm, G) desperately moved. After controlling SK’s rising trend with a wide range of defense and strong defensive activity, he ran quickly. The atmosphere changed with a different movement from the beginning of the second quarter.
The rise of the one-two punch spread to other players as well. Yoon Won-sang (181cm, G) put strength into the attack with 3 points, and Justin Gutang (188cm, F) also showed jumping power and speed at the same time.

LG caused a sensation in the 2022-2023 season. The protagonist of the blast was Asem Marey (202cm, C). LG was able to achieve more than expected because Marey’s wide range of defense and board control shone.
However, Marey was injured in the final match of the regular league (2023.03.29 vs Ulsan Hyundai Mobis). Not a small injury that amounted to ‘6 weeks of total treatment’. With the playoffs ahead, LG was worried.
LG moved quickly. They quickly decided on a foreign player to replace Marey. Reggie Perry (204cm, C) was the target. Most of the clubs said, “All clubs are interested, but he is not a player worth coming to Korea. That’s how high the class is” and highly praised Perry’s capabilities.
However, Perry did not play after the G League ended on March 24th. The game stamina and sense of the game fell. Here, I had to adapt to the unfamiliar land of Korea. There were many anxiety factors. That’s why SK coach Jeon Hee-chul said, “Before Perry adapts, we have to finish the series.”
Perry broke the anxiety factor after two games. Perry’s unique shooting and offensive power shone in the third quarter of the second game. He shook Jameel Warney’s defense with various shooting-based options. Thanks to this, LG widened the gap with SK.
