The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Dongbu Promy as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Dongbu Promy smashed 5th ranked SK Knights in Wonju 83-63. The hosts trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 4-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 83-63. Dongbu Promy dominated down low during the game scoring 44 of its points in the paint compared to SK Knights' 24. Dongbu Promy had a 27-15 advantage in offensive rebounds. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Dongbu Promy made 7 blocks. The former international center Joo-Sung Kim (205-79) had a triple-double by scoring 14 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists to lead the charge for the winners and forward Ho-Young Yoon (198-84) chipped in 18 points and 5 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) during the contest. American center Terrence Leather (204-81, college: S.Florida) responded with 10 points and 6 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Elephants. SK Knights at the other side keep the fifth place with 14 games lost. They share the position with KCC Egis. SK Knights will have a break next week, which should allow them to rest in order to get back on the winning path. Dongbu Promy will try to continue on its current victory against third ranked Sonic Boom KT in Busan.
Leading ET Land Elephants (20-8) recorded its eighth loss in Inchon. Hosts were defeated by third ranked Sonic Boom KT (19-9) 74-65. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of ET Land Elephants. Forward Sang-Oh Park (196-81) notched 20 points and 6 rebounds to lead the effort and Jasper Johnson supported him with 12 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists. Even a double-double of 20 points and 10 rebounds (on 10-of-12 shooting from the field) by American forward Herbert Hill (203-84, college: Providence) did not help to save the game for ET Land Elephants. Sonic Boom KT maintains third position with 19-9 record behind leader Dongbu Promy. ET Land Elephants at the other side still keep top place with eight games lost. They share the position with Dongbu Promy. Sonic Boom KT will play against league's leader Dongbu Promy in Wonju in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week.
