Reggie Perry, who was recruited by LG for the playoffs, failed to score until 5 minutes into the game and was irritated by the opponent’s pressure in the third game. Even in bad conditions, where even Kim Jun-il, the key under the goal, was replaced due to an injury 27 seconds after the start of the game, LG held a great chase, but retreated by one point after the second game.
After the game, LG coach Jo Sang-hyun said, “It was a season with a lot of expectations and worries. However, the players followed well,” he said. “I want to say thank you to the players. Personally, I think I have achieved some success.” “However, we did not show good performance in the playoffs. I’m sorry to the fans who have been looking forward to it. I checked what I need to prepare for next season. We will come back with a stronger team.”
Coach Cho Sang-hyun said, “Completing the defense is an achievement.” He emphasized that he can become a strong team only when he knows how to enjoy the game and shows more of that side in the game.”
In the end, when a foreign player was replaced in the playoff stage, he resigned after becoming the biggest weakness. Coach Cho Sang-hyun said, “There were foreign players throughout the regular season. Two foreign players, Marey and Cunningham, did it diligently. It must have been difficult for Perry to adapt to the game right before the playoffs, but he had a hard time. I will sort out the problem of foreign players and prepare well for the next season.”
