Lee Ho-hyun (182 cm, G) has a different way of loving his family.
Busan KCC defeated Seoul Samseong 106-100 in the 2023-2024 regular season at Sajik Indoor Gymnasium on Feb. 22. The team won its first home game after relocating. It also extended Samsung’s winning streak to ‘4’.
KCC struggled without a point guard for the 2022-2023 season. This put a lot of pressure on Heo Woong (185 cm, G) and Chung Chang-young (193 cm, G), and the pressure of the two frontcourt players led to the pressure of the entire team.
So KCC invested in a resource that could handle the ball. They brought in Lee Ho-hyun (182 cm, G) from the Seoul Samsung. KCC trusted Lee’s stability and sense of direction.
After switching teams, Lee met his former club in the opening game of the 2023-2024 season. Along with Heo Woong and Jung Chang-young, he set the foundation for fast breaks with his defense and then scored with daring layups. Eight points (2-for-4), two assists, one rebound and one steal in the first quarter alone. KCC also finished the first quarter with a score of 34-22.온라인카지노
Lee started the second quarter off the bench. Song Dong-hoon (175 cm, G) replaced him well, and Lee could rest easy.
Then, with 3:52 left in the second quarter. He returned to the court, but with 1:47 left in the second quarter, he picked up his third foul on an assist defense. Foul trouble. This could have thrown a wrench in KCC’s game plan, as well as Lee’s.
However, Lee was still on the court in the third quarter. He was not conscious of his foul count at all and was as aggressive as he was in the first quarter. He set up his former teammate Lee Won-seok (206 cm, C). He scored a floater and drew a foul free throw.
Lee roared. KCC put more distance between them and Samsung, 75-51. The Samsung bench called their first timeout of the second half. One attack by Lee Ho-hyun created a crisis for his old team.
Lee’s offense was far from over. With Heo Woong, Chung Chang-young, and Alize Johnson (201 cm, F) able to carry the ball, Lee created offensive chances without the ball. He made a 3-pointer from the left corner with 2:08 left in the third quarter, and he also tried to set up other players’ offense with passes in the flow of the ball.
Lee Ho-hyun was also quite active. He focused on the basics, like grabbing offensive rebounds and participating in defensive rotations. With Lee energizing both the offense and defense, KCC was able to keep the score somewhat close to Samsung. It was 85-65 heading into the fourth quarter.
When KCC made a big push at the end, Lee was brought in. He calmed the game down. He finished his KCC debut with 17 points, 5 assists, 3 rebounds (1 offensive), and 1 steal in 27 minutes and 21 seconds of play. Against his hometown team, he hit the nail on the head. This was Lee’s way of showing his family love.
