Alize DeShawn Johnson and Heo Woong

At ​​Busan KCC, a professional basketball team where star forward Choi Jun-yong was injured, Alize DeShawn Johnson showed off her unique mobility and took the lead in a huge win against LG in Changwon.

KCC defeated LG 90-69 in the 2023-2024 CheongKwanJang Professional Basketball regular league home game held at Sajik Gymnasium in Busan on the 8th.

KCC, who suffered a shock loss of 88-97 in overtime in the previous game against last-place Seoul Samsung, succeeded in turning the situation around by defeating LG, a top-ranked team that boasts the fewest goals conceded this season.

The main character was Johnson, a foreign player who caused a ‘sabotage controversy’ during the last Samsung game.

Johnson, who was caught on the bench refusing coach Jeon Chang-jin’s instructions to substitute, showed off his skills on the court in that game.

In particular, he played the role of a leader in boosting KCC’s attack speed in place of Choi Jun-yong, who left the Anyang Jeonggwanjang match on the 2nd due to an injury to his thigh adductor.

Johnson, who took the court for the first time at the start of the second quarter, harassed LG’s goal with his unique mobility.

He won the rebound, drove the ball directly into the opponent’s court, and continuously exploited gaps in the LG defense.

LG’s foreign players could not properly respond to Johnson’s ‘quick attack’.

Josh Ibarra is larger than Johnson, but his feet are slower. Juan Tello, born in 1985, also had a hard time catching up with Johnson as he rushed toward the rim without stopping.

Heo Woong

While Johnson played an all-round role, recording 12 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists in the second and third quarters alone, KCC widened the score gap to 20 points.

LG, which was behind by 4 to 15 in fast break scores through the third quarter, lost momentum in its pursuit by giving up seven consecutive points in the early fourth quarter to Lee Ho-hyun, who returned from injury.

While Johnson posted 14 points, 13 rebounds, and 7 assists, Heo Woong also provided firepower from the outside, scoring 23 points, including 4 3-pointers.

Song Kyo-chang (14 points), Lee Ho-hyeon (13 points), and Jeong Chang-young (10 points) also played their part.

For LG, Lee Kwan-hee struggled, scoring 25 points.

KCC, ranked 5th with 21 wins and 16 losses, reduced the gap with LG (24 wins, 16 losses), which fell to 4th place, to one and a half games.

Ulsan Hyundai Mobis once again proved that it is a ‘natural enemy’ by defeating Daegu Korea Gas Corporation 91-79 in the away game.

With this victory, Hyundai Mobis‘ winning streak against Korea Gas Corporation increased to 11 games.

Korea Gas Corporation lost to Hyundai Mobis in the home game (71-81 loss) starting on October 28, 2022.

6th place Hyundai Mobis, with 21 wins and 18 losses, widened the gap with 7th place Korea Gas Corporation (16 wins, 24 losses) to 5 and a half games.

On the other hand, Korea Gas Corporation lost the match against the 6th place team, further reducing its chances of advancing to the semifinals of the playoffs (PO). 스포츠토토맨
