Gas Corporation Lee Dae-seong, who focused on the offense in the first half, also expanded the defense in the second half
Dae-seong Lee (33, 190 cm), guard of Daegu Korea Gas Corporation, runs again. At the end of the first half of the ‘2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball’, the attack weight was significantly increased, but in the second half, with unique versatility and activity, he is responsible for the opponent’s key resources in defense. It is a will to put everything in order for KOGAS to advance to the semifinal playoffs (PO).
Lee Dae-sung marked Heo Woong as the main scorer in an away game against Jeonju KCC on the 24th. It was a different role than before the All-Star break. KOGAS tied Heo Woong with 13 points and won 72-67 thanks to effective defense led by Lee Dae-sung. Gas Corporation suffered two consecutive losses after the start of the second half, but on this day, it was able to win a valuable victory to advance to the middle ranks.
Although the burden of defense increased, Lee Dae-sung’s offensive ability remained unchanged. He also played an active role as a vanguard in attack with 23 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists. This season, he showed off his steady contribution to the attack, running second in scoring (17.0 points) by domestic players.
At the end of the first half, Lee Dae-seong focused more on offense. He suffered physically from the tight schedule, but his right wrist was also not good. Gas Corporation’s coaching staff eased the burden of his defense, which accounts for a large portion of the team’s offense. The defense of the opposing guard and main scorer was left to Cha Ba-wi, Woo Dong-hyeon, and Jo Sang-yeol. However, Lee Dae-seong is a resource with a reputation for excellent one-on-one defense in the league. His true value was re-proven at the KCC game on the 24th. 토토사이트
KOGAS remains in ninth place with a record of 13 wins and 19 losses. However, the gap with 6th place KCC (16 wins, 18 losses), which is the final line for advancing to the round of 6 PO, is only 2 games. So, the victory against KCC on the 24th was more meaningful to KOGAS.
Lee Dae-sung will be eligible for free agency (FA) after this season. This is another reason to get satisfactory results this season. I wonder if Lee Dae-seong, who has started to prove his value again throughout the offense and defense, will be able to receive clear treatment in the free agency market after the season by putting KOGAS as the PO.
