Second-place Changwon LG, third-place KT, and fourth-place SK, who are aiming for a direct ticket to the semifinal playoffs (PO), all have four regular league games left each.

Not only did SK have a chance of advancing directly to the semifinals, but there was also a cloud over its realistic goal of regaining third place.

SK's Kim Sun-hyung, who returned from injury last week, led the attack with light movement, but it was a difficult game as he piled up three fouls and went to the bench less than five minutes into the game.

In the second quarter, when SK was behind 17-25, their shots kept missing the rim, and they were pushed out of the rebound by DB led by Jeff Withey, making it difficult to close the score gap.

With the return of Kim Seon-hyung in the middle of the second quarter, SK's attack centered on fast breaks began to break through, and Choi Won-hyuk, Kim Seon-hyung, Jamil Warney, and Oh Se-geun combined to score 10 points in a row to successfully turn the game around.

SK, which finished the first half with a score of 43-38, took the lead by nine points in the third quarter with Warney and Kim Seon-hyung each firing outside shots, and Choi Won-hyuk's three-point play.

As DB continued to chase, led by Withy's rebound, SK Kim Hyung-bin maintained the lead by hitting 3-pointers and blocked shots at every critical point, and entered the fourth quarter with a 70-65 lead.

In the last quarter, SK's coach Jeon Hee-cheol, who was protesting the referee's decision, received a technical foul and was trailing by one point.

Kim Sun-hyung made a fast break layup with incredible speed and ran away with a three-point lead.

DB Park In-woong, SK Kim Seon-hyung, and DB Kang Sang-jae exchanged outside shots to tie the score again 4 minutes and 40 seconds before the end, and Kang Sang-jae's 3-pointer 3 minutes and 6 seconds later made it 81-82.

DB Didrick Lawson made a free throw 1 minute and 2 seconds before the end to open the gap to 3 points, and SK followed up with a one-point lead when Warney made a shot under the goal 42.0 seconds before the end.

After Kim Sun-hyung's steal 17 seconds before the end, Warney missed both free throws 2 seconds before the end, and SK ultimately bowed at 83-84.

DB Ethan Albano played an active role with 25 points and 8 assists.

For SK, Warney struggled with 27 points and 11 rebounds, and Kim Seon-hyung scored 24 points.
