The game was decided in a quick attack. SK, which played fresh basketball, took a 20-4 lead in the fast break score index. 

SK’s Jamil Warney showed off his team’s pillar-like appearance with 26 points and 12 rebounds. Oh Jae-hyun scored 17 points, including three 3-pointers, and inflicted great damage on the opponent. Kim Seon-hyeong achieved a double-double with 11 points and 10 assists.

KCC struggled with Laguna scoring 26 points, but could not prevent defeat. The more painful fact is that Seung-Hyun Lee withdrew due to an injury during the third quarter.

At the beginning of the game, while scoring was not coming out well, Jeon Jun-beom and Choi Seong-won exchanged outer guns. Afterwards, SK, which even Kim Seon-hyeong and Oh Jae-hyeon made 3-point shots, gained an advantage by actively participating in the fight for supremacy. He also scored on a quick break, taking advantage of the opponent’s error. 

It was not easy for KCC to catch up with the exciting SK. SK, which had a well-organized passing game, quickly ran away with the players performing evenly. The first quarter ended with SK leading 28-15.

SK’s offensive continued in the second quarter. Oh Jae-hyun energized the team with his speed, and veterans Choi Boo-kyung and Heo Il-young also contributed. In KCC, Ji-Wan Kim exerted his strength in the drought of outer shells, but SK immediately responded with Jae-Hyun Oh’s 3-point shot.  

KCC, in crisis, tried to rebound with Jeong Chang-young’s consecutive goals. Then SK faced off with Lyon Williams’ 3-point shot and Kim Seon-hyeong’s mid-range jumper, ending the first half with a score of 48-33. 

In the third quarter, SK started with Oh Jae-hyun’s 3-point shot and beat the opponent. With Warney’s plotter scoring, the score gap widened to 20 points, and to make matters worse, KCC faced the bad news of Lee Seung-hyun’s departure due to injury. 

While KCC hardly found a clue to attack, SK accumulated points one by one based on quick attacks. SK, which maintained a large score difference, finished the third quarter with 69-49.

When the 4th quarter began, KCC pulled the reins of the chase with Laguna at the center. However, SK countered with Kim Seon-hyung’s floater and Heo Il-young’s 3-point shot, leaving no room for it.

SK, who endlessly drove KCC, celebrated the victory with a cool dunk by Warney. SK, which played the game at a fast tempo without rest, defeated KCC and took the first game.
