Thanks to Warney’s performance, SK advanced to the quarterfinals PO.
Seoul SK won 77-72 against Jeonju KCC in the 3rd game of the 2022-2023 professional basketball round of 6 playoff held at the Jeonju Indoor Gymnasium on the 7th.
The first contributor to the victory was Jameel Warney (200cm, C). Warney had a great performance, recording 30 points and 13 rebounds. He has been very active in the last 3 games as well as this day’s game. War is averaging 25.3 points and 10.3 rebounds in the series.
SK ended the first half with a score of 34-49. They trailed by 15 points, but there were no major problems. The reason was because Warney was there. Warney scored 12 points in the third quarter. In addition, SK’s strong defense was added, and SK narrowed the score gap.
And Warney’s performance continued in the fourth quarter. Warney scored every crucial moment and grabbed the decisive rebound. As a result, SK succeeded in reversing and won the game widening the score difference.
Warney, who won the six-final playoff, said, “I expected it to be a difficult series. If KCC is not injured, I think it is a strong team with good individual skills. Actually, it was difficult throughout the series. In particular, the 2nd and 3rd games were almost close matches and could have been lost. We were able to win because we did not give up.” 메이저놀이터
Warney made a wonderful step-back 3-point shot while running out of time at 4:06 before the end of the fourth quarter. It wasn’t the usual Warnie’s look. When this was mentioned, Warney laughed and said, “The coach emphasized not to shoot stepbacks during practice. But he didn’t say anything about the step-back 3-point shot. So he was confident,” he responded.
The next topic was the semifinal playoffs. In response, Warney said, “There is a break time in preparation for the semifinals. I want to look my best by taking good care of my body.”
Then, when asked about Reggie Perry (203cm, F), who newly joined LG, “The basketball community is not big, so we know each other. He did well in the G-League. A good player has come, but you have to be careful,” he said of Perry.
And “You have to win one of the two away games to take the series. Our team has been in good shape since EASL. We have to continue that way,” he concluded the interview.
