Busan KCC ended the semifinal playoffs against Seoul SK in the third game. After resting and recharging for a week, the semifinal playoffs against Wonju DB ended in the 4th game. In the first game of the championship match, which took place after five days of rest, KCC took the lead without exerting much effort.

In the first game of the 2023-2024 CheongKwanJang Professional Basketball Championship held on the 27th, KCC won a landslide victory over KT with a score of 90-73. Song Kyo-chang and Heo Woong scored 17 points each, La Gun-ah and Alize DeShawn Johnson each scored 14 points, and Choi Jun-yong scored 12 points, with five players scoring in double digits.

However, all five of these players played less than 30 minutes. The playing time was controlled very efficiently. After La Gun-ah and Song Kyo-chang played the full 10 minutes in the first quarter, only Alize DeShawn Johnson played 10 minutes in the second quarter.

In the first half, they were behind by 39-41 against KT, who played with Paris Bass and Heo Hoon at the center, but when the opportunity came in the third quarter, they overturned the game with one shot.

As soon as the third quarter began, Heo Woong, Song Kyo-chang, Choi Jun-yong, Calvin Jeffrey Epistola, Song Kyo-chang, Choi Jun-yong, and Song Kyo-chang scored 15 points in a row in that order. Underneath the goal, La Gun-ah completely blocked KT Ha Yoon-gi, blocking the shot and stealing the ball. KT continued to shoot outside shots, but they did not go in. KCC turned the tide to 54-41 just 4 minutes into the third quarter. They pushed until the end, leading 33-14 in the third quarter and ending the third quarter at 72-55. In fact, the game ended in the third quarter.

In this third quarter, La Gun-ah, Choi Jun-yong, and Song Kyo-chang all played the full 10 minutes. Heo Woong and Epistola played 9 minutes each. In the third quarter alone, Song Kyo-chang scored 13 points, Heo Woong scored 7 points, Choi Jun-yong scored 6 points, and La Gun-ah scored 5 points.

La Gun-ah, Heo Woong, Choi Jun-yong, and Song Kyo-chang are the core of the ultra-luxurious lineup that calls KCC a ‘super team.’ None of them lasted more than 30 minutes that day. They looked for an opportunity and ended the game by pouring in in the third quarter, which they thought was the deciding factor.

KT has Bass, the top scorer in the regular season, and Heo Hoon, the best shooter. In defense, KCC abandoned Bass and Heo Hoon and thoroughly blocked other domestic players with the strategy of “We can’t stop Heo Hoon anyway.” In KT, Bass (29 points) and Heo Hoon (12 points) eventually scored 41 points, but Ha Yoon-gi (6 points), Jeong Sung-woo (6 points), and Moon Jeong-hyeon (2 points) were all silent. Moon Seong-gon did not score a single point.

KCC’s super team members are performing evenly from the semifinals to the first round of the championship. All five of them attack with great attack power, but after finishing both the semifinals and semifinals early, they advance to the next stage with all their strength saved. Even in the first game of the championship, they won with a defense that throws away opponents and ‘efficiency basketball’ where they pour in when they need to work hard. Ultimately, the outcome of this series depends on whether KT can silence even one member of KCC’s luxurious lineup.

Of the 26 championship matches held in history, the team that won the first round won the championship 18 times. The second game will be held at KT’s home, Suwon, on the 29th.
