Shin Dong-hyeok (191cm, F) continues to make big strides.
Seoul Samsung won 78-57 against Daegu Korea Gas Corporation in the 6th round of the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball held at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium on the 27th. Samsung, which ended its six-game losing streak, recorded 14 wins and 39 losses.
Samsung lost one option foreign player Darral Willis (202cm, F) due to injury. Anthony Moss (200cm, F) is playing a solid role, but he has not been able to overcome the challenge due to his insufficient scoring power.
Shin Dong-hyuk is the player who has been overcoming Samsung’s sluggish scoring recently. Shin Dong-hyuk has scored the most points on the team with 21-19-18 points in the last three games.
Shin Dong-hyuk wore a Samsung uniform with the 6th pick in the 1st round in the 2022 KBL rookie draft. He has been noticed as a 3&D resource since his days at Yonsei University. He was even mentioned as a candidate for a lottery pick.
However, his professional stage was high. Shin Dong-hyuk, who played in the previous game in the first round, failed to use his shooting ability with a 3-point shooting success rate of 17.6%.
Shin Dong-hyuk’s reversal began in the second round. Shin Dong-hyuk struggled with his explosive three-point shooting ability after doubling his playing time average. From the 2nd to the 6th round, his three-point shooting success rate reached 66.7% -45.5% -41.7% -40% -57.7%. In the 2022-2023 season, his 3-point success rate is also running high at 44.7%. His 3-point shooting percentage of 44.7% is the highest in the league.
Shin Dong-hyuk showed all of his growth in this game. He scored his first points with an offensive rebound and a footback, and immediately after a drive-in, he delivered an assist to help Lee Won-seok (207cm, C) score.
It was Shin Dong-hyuk who used the 3-point shot and elbow jumper as the main scoring route. The elbow jumper attempted after a concise one-two dribble showed a high success rate.
Shin Dong-hyuk even actively participated in the transition. His stable finishing ability contributed to Samsung’s last home win. 바카라
The finish line was the 3rd quarter. Shin Dong-hyuk stepped on the court with 5 minutes and 29 seconds left in the third quarter. He immediately cut off Shin Seung-min’s (195cm, F) pass, and then accelerated to finish the fast break.
In addition, Shin Dong-hyeok fired a series of last-minute shot clock buzzer beaters in the third quarter. He was a dead-ball 3-pointer and a mid-range jumper. It was a goal that brought victory to Samsung.
Shin Dong-hyuk is getting better grades than his draft mates such as Yang Jun-seok (180cm, G), Lee Doo-won (204cm, C), Park In-woong (190cm, F), Song Dong-hoon (174cm, G), and Kim Tae-wan (180cm, G). If he hadn’t had the Asian Quarter, he might have been crowned Rookie of the Year.
At the press conference after the match, Shin Dong-hyuk said, “People around me talk about (that I’m sorry) a lot. It’s a story I hear a lot in the news. I will. I am experiencing the pro stage earlier than other rookies.
Shin Dong-hyuk’s future is bright. He is poised to step up beyond his impressive debut season.
