Ulsan Hyundai Mobis and Suwon KT are in completely different situations.

Hyundai Mobis, ranked sixth in the 2023-2024 regular season, recorded 1 win and 1 loss in the enemy territory. It came to the home turf in an upbeat mood. However, it completely lost Game 3 on the home turf. With one more loss, it has to end the 2023-2024 season.

KT, ranked third in the 2023-2024 regular season, had one win and one loss at its home ground. It could have been a bit nervous. However, it beat Hyundai Mobis in the right place.

KT was in a tight spot with Hyundai Mobis until the second leg. Notably, it led 71-61, but lost the game 77-79. It went to the enemy territory in a bad mood.
KT finished the first half of the third game 33-38. It failed to form a turning point until the first half of the third game. It seemed that the team still failed to overcome the crisis in the third quarter.
Still, KT showed different performance than before. Moon Seong-gon (195 cm, F) and Moon Jung-hyun (194 cm, F) dominated the defense first. The two players blocked Hyundai Mobis’ offense with high level of defense energy.
Then Paris Bath (200 cm, F) and Hur Hoon (180 cm, G) ended the game. Hur scored eight points in the fourth quarter alone, and Bath scored a three-pointer (75-60) just four minutes and 45 seconds before the end of the game. KT, which combined both offense and defense, won the game 79-62. It had two wins and one loss overall. It is now closer to the playoff of the semifinals. 사설 토토사이트

  3. Gage Prim: 15:42, 15 points, 8 rebounds (attack 4) 2 blocks, 1 steal
  4. Kebe Aluma: 22 minutes and 6 seconds, 12 points and 5 rebounds (attack 1) 2 steals and 1 block shot

Hyundai Mobis did better than expected. It was until the second game. However, it collapsed sharply in the third game. So the crisis seemed bigger for Hyundai Mobis.
“Excessive enthusiasm” is not allowed. You must show your fighting power, but be calm and sophisticated. You have to meet “will” and “calm” to survive in the playoffs.
On the other hand, KT gained an advantage. It eliminated the tense atmosphere until Game 2. For that reason, the ‘series advantage’ approaches KT as a bigger opportunity.
However, KT should consider Game 4 as the most important game. If it loses Game 4, it cannot guarantee Game 5. So neither the KT coaching staff nor its players were drunk on winning Game 4. Rather, it emphasized higher concentration.
