Technical support issues
Daegu Korea Gas Corporation Pegasus failed to escape from the swamp of consecutive losses. They lost to the Changwon LG Sakers in the 2023-2024 professional basketball season, falling into an 8-game losing streak.
KOGAS lost 62 to 77 to LG in an away game in Changwon on the 19th. The previous day in Ulsan, they lost 80-81 to Ulsan Hyundai Mobis Phoebus in overtime, and they struggled against LG on this day as well, but were unable to break their losing streak.
On this day, the Korea Gas Corporation opened with Sam Josef Belangel's floater. Afterwards, Kim Nak-hyun and Shin Seung-min added points with mid- and long-range shots. LG countered with consecutive goals from Justin Gutang and Assem Mar
KOGAS allowed Gutang to break through 3 minutes and 28 seconds before the end of the first quarter and lost the game 11-12. KOGAS tried to change the mood with Chabawi's 3-pointer, but LG responded with Lee Kwan-hee's 3-pointer and ended the first quarter trailing by 13 to 23.
Following the first quarter, KOGAS suffered from frequent offensive rebounds to LG Marey in the second quarter. Still, after the middle of the second quarter, Nak-Hyun Kim's 3-point shot and breakthrough narrowed the score gap. At 4 minutes and 21 seconds before the end of the second quarter, the score was tied 29-29 following Kim Dong-ryang's offensive rebound. Nicholson took advantage of the fact that LG Marey's movement was limited due to his third foul, and actively targeted the bottom of the LG goal. When the second quarter ended, the score was tied 39-39.
At the beginning of the third quarter, KOGAS was somewhat shaken by allowing goals to Gutang and Yoo Yu-sang. In addition, 5 minutes and 34 seconds before the end of the third quarter, main gun Nicholson committed his fourth foul and was in danger of being ejected for 5 fouls, so he had no choice but to be called to the bench. Nicholson's absence was not small. KOGAS responded to LG's pressure with Chabawi's 3-point shot and Lee Dae-heon's shot from behind, but ended the third quarter trailing 51 to 62.
In the 4th quarter, KOGAS showed strength. Shin Seung-min and Belangel's breakthrough and Park Bong-jin's shot from behind the goal narrowed the score gap to 57-65 8 minutes and 27 seconds before the end of the game. However, there were a series of mistakes in the attack and it was not easy to catch up. Ahn Se-young's 3-point shot 3 minutes and 21 seconds before the end of the game and Shin Joo-young's mid-range shot 2 minutes and 40 seconds ago pushed the score to 62-70, but there was not enough time to turn the game back.
