Professional basketball’s Busan KCC is on the verge of a championship in its new home. They are now just one win away from their first ever fifth-place finish.

KCC defeated Suwon KT 96-90 in Game 4 of the 2023-24 Korean Professional Basketball League championship on Wednesday at Busan Sajik Gymnasium. KCC, which had previously won Games 1 and 3, improved to 3-1 in the series with the victory. KT, which finished third in the regular season, was one game ahead of KCC. They only needed one more loss to take the series.

KCC is playing in the championship for the first time ever. The team recruited Choi Jun-yong before the season and assembled a “super team” with a national-level top-five, but injuries and poor performances in the regular season led to a fifth-place finish. However, the momentum from the end of the season continued into the playoffs. After defeating even Wonju DB, the No. 1 team in the regular season, KCC overwhelmed No. 3 KT in the championship game and came close to winning the title. In the history of professional basketball, the fifth-place team in the regular season has never won a championship. If KCC wins the title, it will be the sixth trophy in the franchise’s history. It would be their first title in 13 years since the 2010-11 season.

In the end, Choi Jun-yong was the star of the show. He scored a team-high 24 points on the day. Choi’s “best friend” Ragan-ah also had 19 points 카지노 and 14 rebounds, while Heo Woong also recorded a double-double with 14 points and 10 assists. KT was led by Heo’s younger brother Heo-hoon’s 33 points, but they couldn’t overcome the superstar-studded KCC.

It was also the largest crowd of the season. On this day, 11,117 people came to Sajik Gymnasium to watch KCC’s victory. This is more than the 10,496 fans who attended Game 3 at the same venue on the previous day and the largest crowd of the season. This is the first time since the 2010-11 season when Wonju Dongbu and Jeonju KCC played Games 5 and 6 of the championship series.

The two teams will meet for Game 5 of the series at KT Sonic Boom Arena in Suwon on Nov. 5. KT is on the brink and KCC is just one step away from the title.
