“I just need to beat my record.”
‘Flame shooter’ Jeon Seong-hyeon (Goyang Carrot) burned his will to break his own three-point shooting record in consecutive games.
Jeon Seong-hyun threw 7 3-point shots in the 2022-23 professional basketball regular season home game against Seoul Samsung held at Goyang Gymnasium on the 30th, but all were unsuccessful. Accordingly, Seong-Hyun Jeon, who had succeeded in making three-point shots in 76 consecutive games, had to stop his record-breaking streak. Goyang Carrot won a difficult 68-65 victory, including Jeon Seong-hyun, through out-of-town hunting. He threw 33 3-pointers and made 5 (15%), and although he made 1 more than Samsung, it was not the appearance of the team that ranked 1st in 3-point shooting this season.
Jeon Seong-hyun, who only scored 9 points, less than half of his average score (19.6 points), said after the game, “I’m really glad I won,” but “two of the shots I threw went in and bounced out. I can’t help it on a day like this.”
At the same time, he said, “It is regrettable that the record was broken, but it is cool.” I will try again from the next game.”
Jeon Seong-hyun, who is having a record-breaking season with a success rate of 41.1% and successfully scoring 3 points in 4 or so games in each game, drew attention with his record of 3 points in consecutive games. On November 13, 2021, during the Anyang KGC days, Jeon Seong-hyun, who threw 3 points and missed all three in a match against Goyang Orion (Carrot’s predecessor), made at least one 3-point shot in 76 consecutive games. He also widened the gap with former manager of Changwon LG (54 games), Cho Seong-won, who ranked second in this category, and established himself as the best shooter in Korea. 메이저사이트
Previously, coach Kim Seung-gi Carrot said, “I wonder if anyone will break this record,” and “I told Jeon Seong-hyun that it was better. He seemed to be having a hard time throwing too many shots at the record burden.”
Jeon Seong-hyun, who heard this, said, “In fact, he had to concentrate during the game, so he didn’t feel any pressure.”
For the first time in professional basketball history, Carrot is throwing more 3-pointers (34.5) than 2-pointers (32.7) this season. His 3-point success is also an average of 12.2 per game, far exceeding KGC (9.4), which is second in this category. That means scoring close to 30 points on three-pointers per game. Regarding this, Jeon Seong-hyun said, “Actually, I still can’t get used to it.” “Actually, there is a difficult part as a shooter because it is basketball without a center, but all the team members are playing a winning game by throwing 3 points.” He added, “I get cursed at a lot on days I don’t go in, but when I go in, I’m evaluated as cool.”
