Changwon LG’s Heung basketball team beat even Busan’s KCC, which boasted an incredible offense centered on “early attacks.” With Pazooq’s nine-game winning streak, LG is effectively in second place and can advance directly to the semifinal playoff.

LG defeated KCC 101-92 in an away game in the 2023-2024 Cheongjang Professional Basketball Regular League held at Sajik Gymnasium in Busan on the 22nd.
