‘Unfortunate reverse defeat’ Hyundai Mobis manager Jo Dong-hyun “I was complacent in the basics”￼
“He showed complacency in the basics”
Ulsan Hyundai Mobis Phoebus lost 80-87 in the 4th game against the Goyang Carrot Jumpers in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Pro Basketball Round of 6 playoff held at the Goyang Gymnasium on the 8th. The two teams decided to tie the game in the final 5th game.
Hyundai Mobis finished the first quarter 30-17, but in the second quarter, they committed frequent turnovers and gave the flow of the game to Carrot.
Coach Dong-Hyun Jo said, “It’s unfortunate that the start was so good, but I was complacent about the basics while playing the game. I will prepare well for the 5th game so that I can win.”
Next, coach Cho said, “When the players are winning, they can do what they do well, but they showed a complacent attitude whether they wanted to shoot more or be greedy to score faster. “he added.
For Hyundai Mobis, Ham Ji-hoon was absent due to back pain. To make matters worse, Choi Jin-soo also suffered an ankle injury and was carried off the court on a stretcher.
Coach Cho said, “In Game 3, I didn’t put it in because my back was bad and I felt that I didn’t have to put in the flow. In Game 4, I tried to use (Ham Ji-hoon), but this morning, my back suddenly hurt, so I excluded it. Jihoon is the player who makes the best. I think he does the best in KBL in the role of building legs according to the flow. We will decide whether or not to put in the 5th game by looking at the condition.”
Next, coach Jo said, “(Choi) Jin-soo’s condition is still unknown. We need to check whether he can play in the 5th game, but it won’t be easy. Since Ji-hoon isn’t here, there is something I want Jin-soo to do more with (Jang) Jae-seok. But Jin-su I don’t think it’s been difficult since I got hurt,” he added. 스포츠토토
Lastly, regarding Gage Prim, who did not return to the court after suffering a foul trouble, coach Cho said, “I didn’t put it back on purpose. I thought I had to prepare for the next game because I gave up completely. I thought I would. I would have put it back in the regular league, but I gave it a break because I had to risk everything in the 5th game.”
