7th Place and 5 Games Behind… The Structure of the Professional Basketball Semifinals is Decided Early On



The competition for second place in the semifinals between the ‘three telecommunications companies’ SK, LG, and KT is fierce.


The competition for the semifinals of the regular league in the 2023-2024 professional basketball season appears to be being settled early.


With round 4 out of 6 rounds in progress, 6th place Ulsan Hyundai Mobis (19 wins, 17 losses) and 7th place Daegu Korea Gas Corporation (14 wins, 22 losses) have 5 games to go. 카지노


Competition in professional basketball rankings usually takes place in four areas: first place, second place, which can advance directly to the semifinal playoffs, sixth place, which can advance to the semifinal playoffs, and last place.


However, this season, Wonju DB (27 wins, 9 losses) is in sole first place, 4 games ahead of 2nd place, and Seoul Samsung (5 wins, 30 losses) is 8 games behind 9th place Anyang Cheongkwanjang (13 wins, 23 losses).


Staying in last place.


Among the four ranking points, the competition for three positions, 1st, 6th, and 10th, has become somewhat dull.


Recently, the team that has sparked the competition for 6th place is by far the 7th place Korea Gas Corporation.


Korea Gas Corporation is a team classified as ‘second weak’ along with Samsung before the start of the season.


There seemed to be many unsettling factors, such as the total player compensation being the lowest among the 10 clubs and Acting Manager Kang Hyeok, who was the coach until last season, leading the team in an ‘acting’ capacity.


Korea Gas Corporation suffered its worst slump with 1 win and 12 losses in the 13 games after the opening, but it completely changed with 13 wins and 10 losses in the next 23 games.


In particular, entering 2024, they are flying high with 7 wins and 2 losses.


The second loss was also a result of a close match against Hyundai Mobis and Goyang Sono.


Korea Gas Corporation is diligently taking steps toward reaching the top 6, but the problem is that 6th place Hyundai Mobis’ recent momentum is also good.


Recently, Hyundai Mobis has been on a three-game winning streak and is cruising to 6 wins and 3 losses in January of this year.

They scored over 90 points in the last six consecutive games, recording 5 wins and 1 loss.


Although Korea Gas Corporation rode the upward trend with tremendous momentum, Hyundai Mobis also ran away at the same speed, making the competition for the top six difficult.


In particular, Hyundai Mobis has won all four games against Korea Gas Corporation, so even if the score is tied, Hyundai Mobis is more advantageous because it takes the top spot.


8th place Sono (13 wins, 22 losses) and 9th place Cheongkwanjang also do not have a large gap with Korea Gas Corporation, but they appear to be struggling to chase down 6th place, with their January records being only 4 wins, 4 losses and 3 wins and 5 losses, respectively.


Among the ranking competition points, the battle for second place, which can advance directly to the semifinal playoffs, is fierce.

Seoul SK is in second place with 23 wins and 13 losses, and Changwon LG and Suwon KT are tied for third place with 22 wins and 13 losses, a half-game difference.


5th place Busan KCC (19 wins, 15 losses) is slightly different.


SK, LG, and KT, also known as the ‘three major telecommunications companies’, are not yet at the stage of giving up their pursuit of first place, but they are likely to first aim for second place, which will allow them to advance directly to the semifinals.
