81.8%. It is the probability of winning the winning team in Game 5 of the men’s professional basketball championship match.
The competition between KGC and SK to win the men’s professional basketball championship in the 2022-23 season is fierce. SK returned the game to the starting point by beating KGC 100-91 in the 4th game of the championship match on the 1st.
As the two teams face each other with 2 wins and 2 losses, the most tense championship match is currently underway. It is the first time in five years since the 2017-18 season that the team has not tilted until the 4th game.
The 5th game of the championship match, which will break the balance between the two teams again, will be held on the 3rd at 7:00 pm at the Jamsil Student Gymnasium in Seoul. In particular, Game 5 is expected to be a watershed that will determine the direction of the championship.

There are 8 cases in which they won 5 or 6 games by driving momentum.

Since the 2002-03 season, a team with 2 wins and 3 losses has never won the 6th or 7th game and reached the top. This means that the winning team in Game 5 will have a very good advantage in reaching the top.
Both KGC and SK are bound to have different resolutions for the 5th game. Both teams will play offensive basketball. KGC has high expectations for Oh Se-geun and Lens Abando, who lead the attack. Byun Jun-hyung also scored 15 points in the 4th game and his offensive power is reviving.
Kim Sang-shik, coach of KGC, analyzed, “The offense didn’t work out well in the 4th game and there were a lot of individual plays,” and plans to start the 5th game with offensive basketball.ㅋㅋㅋ벳
SK’s good news is that the offense of Kim Seon-hyung and Warney, who scored 53 points in the 4th game, revived. SK coach Jeon Hee-chul said, “There is nothing more to come up with in terms of offensive tactics. We can win only when we shoot.” “If KGC’s shot fails, we quickly connect with a fast attack to give the opponent no time to respond,” he said of the plan for Game 5.
