‘Lawson-Alvano combine for 59 points’ DB’s magic number ‘2’ in 115:104 win over KCC

Wonju DB used a devastating 115-point offensive outburst to beat Busan KCC and remain two wins away from clinching the regular season title.

DB defeated KCC 115-104 in a nail-biting home game in the 2023-2024 Korean Basketball Association regular season at Wonju General Gymnasium in Gangwon Province on Monday.

DB, which has won six straight games, improved its record to 37-10 and maintained a 6.5-game lead over second-place 토토사이트 Suwon KT (30-16).

DB needs two more wins in its remaining seven games to clinch first place in the regular season. A win against KT on Thursday would give DB a shot at the top spot in the regular season.

DB combined for 59 points on the day, led by 31 points from Dedrick Lawson and 28 points from Lee Sun Albano, while Kang Sang-jae also had a double-double with 20 points and 10 rebounds.

Lawson was particularly accurate from beyond the arc, hitting 15 of 27 shots, including 6 of 8 from three-point range.

KCC improved to 25-21 despite Lee Seung-hyun leading the way with 24 points, moving to within three games of fourth-place Seoul SK (28-18).

In Suwon, second-place home team KT defeated Ulsan Hyundai Mobis 98-84.

In a matchup of three straight losing teams, KT was led by Paris Bass’ 29 points and seven rebounds.

Especially with the score at 89-92 with 1:48 left in regulation, Bass converted three three-point plays by himself to turn the tide of the game.

KT, which would have fallen into a four-game losing streak and tied for second place with Changwon LG (29 wins, 17 losses) if it had lost, snapped the losing streak and maintained its second-place position thanks to Bass’ one-man show.

Hyundai Mobis, which lost its last four games in a row, remained in sixth place (24 wins, 23 losses). The consolation is that they still have a good chance of qualifying for the six-team playoffs with five games in hand over seventh-place Daegu Kogas (19 points, 28 games).

Last-place Seoul Samsung defeated Goyang Sono 92-86 at home.

Samsung improved to 4-2 against Sono this season, led by Kofi Coburn’s 31 points and 15 rebounds and a “surprise performance” from Sung-won Yoon, who scored 16 points on four three-pointers. With 11 wins and 36 losses, Samsung is still in last place.

Sono improved to 15 wins and 32 losses to remain in eighth place, ahead of ninth-place Anyang Jungkwanjang (14 wins and 31 losses) only on winning percentage.

Sono’s Lee Jung-hyun, who is a favorite for Most Valuable Player despite his team’s sub-par performance, scored 37 points on his own.
