“Single digit score after a long time…” One digit in 107 days, the silent Warney

 Jamil Warney, who scored 23 points in the first game, only scored 9 points in the second game.

Seoul SK Warney recorded 9 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists in the second leg of the championship match against the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Pro Basketball Anyang KGC at Anyang Gymnasium on the 27th. As the main scorers, Warney and Kim Seon-hyeong (10 points), were blocked, SK lost 67-81.

Warney played all games in the regular league this season, averaging 24.2 points and 11.2 rebounds. The last time I scored a single digit was the last game against Changwon LG on January 10th. At that time, Warney had only 4 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists in 21 minutes and 47 seconds. After that, he would stay in single digits for the first time in 107 days.

After the game, coach Jeon Hee-chul was also surprised by Warney’s single-digit score. Director Jeon Hee-chul said, “It’s been a long time since Warnie only scored in single digits. Perhaps he was excited, and with Kim Seon-hyung, the one-two punch field goal success rate dropped.”

Warney posted 24.7 points against KGC in the regular league. This is the 3rd highest scoring average against any given team. It is proof that he was strong against KGC. In the first game of the championship match, Warney bombed 23 points.ㅋㅋㅋ벳

However, as much as the second game, I had to keep silence. SK relies heavily on Warney and Kim Seon-hyung, but Kim Seon-hyung had a hard time defending Moon Seong-gon. Kim Seon-hyeong had no choice but to attack from the left because his right attack was blocked, and his strength, speed, did not stick well. At the same time, Warney’s attack was also silenced.

Eight of Warney’s nine points were scored with a long-term floater, and the other one was a free throw. Warney tried 17 field shots and only put in 4. The field goal success rate was 24%.

Omari Spellman’s changed concentration also constantly bothered Warnie. Spellman focused on team play rather than on offense. Oh Se-geun, whom we met after the game, also praised Spellman’s defense.

Can Warney, who was completely blocked in the 2nd game, fly again in the 3rd game? Game 3 will be held on the 29th at Jamsil Student Gymnasium.
