Pro basketball regular season title race heats up…2nd-place KT wins 7 straight, leading DB wins 3 in a row

Suwon KT forgot how to lose for a while, and after resuming from the international call-up break, the team rattled off seven straight wins at the expense of Seoul Samsung.

KT defeated Samsung 106-86 on Monday night at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium in Seoul, South Korea, 바카라사이트 in the 2023-2024 Professional Basketball League.

With the win, second-place KT improved to 29 wins (13 losses) and maintained a four-game lead over first-place Wonju DB (34-10). If KT, which has played two games less, maintains its furious chase, it opens up the possibility that DB can’t count on winning the title until the very end.

KT also extended its lead over third-place Changwon LG (26 points, 17 games) to 3.5 games, which would allow it to qualify directly for the fourth-place playoffs (PO).

Samsung (9-34), on the other hand, suffered a loss at home and will now face the ignominy of finishing last for the first three consecutive seasons in professional basketball history.

On the day, KT, which saw the return of Heo Hoon (11 points) from injury, used a fiery offense that included 21 points apiece from national team big men Heo Yoon-ki and Paris Bass.

KT jumped out to an early 56-41 lead at halftime and extended the lead to over 20 points in the third quarter, thanks to Bass’ scoring explosion. In the fourth quarter, Jung Sung-woo poured in 10 points to seal the win.

Samsung also had a strong showing, with Kofi Coburn leading both teams with 30 points, including 21 in the second half, but it was not enough as the team lost.

In Busan, DB continued their winning streak with a 92-78 victory over home team KCC, led by Dedrick Lawson (32 points) and Lee Sun Albano (25 points).
