“If you want to stop me, stop me!” Heo Hoon’s boast worked, and Lee Woo-seok’s five fouls were fired

Heo Hoon (KT) kept 100% of what he said.

Suwon KT beat Ulsan Hyundai Mobis 93-90 in the first round of the 2023-24 professional basketball semifinal playoff held at KT Sonic Boom Arena in Suwon on the 5th.

During the playoffs, Heo laughed at Hyundai Mobis and said, “Who’s stopping me?” When Lee said, “It’s me,” Heo again said, “Who are you? If you want to stop me, tell me to stop you,” showing strong confidence.

For Hyundai Mobis, Miguel Andre Okzon started and faced Heo Hoon. Okzon played well with Heo Hoon scoring more than expected. Okzon scored 17 points and three assists.

Heo Hoon was strong at the last minute, scoring 11 points in the fourth quarter alone. In particular, Lee Woo-seok blocked Heo Hoon’s attack 52 seconds before the end when KT was trailing 88-90. The scene promised at Media Day actually paid off.

When Heo Hoon tried to break through, Lee Woo-suk stopped him. Foul was declared. Lee was sent off for five fouls. Heo Hoon made both of his free throws to make it 90-90. In the next attack, Moon Jung-hyun’s buzzer-beating 3-pointer was played, and KT won.

After the game, Hyundai Mobis coach Cho Dong-hyun said about Heo Hoon’s final defense, “There was no player to take care of. If we add one more player without Woo Seok, we will make mistakes in our offense. I asked Woo Seok to take on the role of Heo Hoon. I have some regrets from my experience, but I will prepare well for the second round.”

As a result, Hyundai Mobis lost the final attack without even using ace Lee Woo-seok. If Lee Woo-seok had stopped Heo Hoon, it could have been a clear winning card, but the risk was too high with four fouls.

Heo Hoon said about Lee’s departure, “(Lee) Woo-suk did a good job today. Mobis showed good performance today. He showed everything. Woo-suk showed over 100 percent performance. I will prepare well for the second round and prevent it,” he said, giving advice to Lee. 안전놀이터
