With SK’s Kim Sun-hyung (4 points) briefly leaving the court after picking up his fourth foul with 3:18 left in the third quarter, Sono took a 60-58 lead into the final period on 3-pointers from Kim Min-wook and Lee Jung-hyun.
After racking up points on fast breaks and 3-pointers, SONO cut the deficit to 68-58 on a 3-pointer by Lee Jung-hyun with 8:07 left in the fourth quarter.
SONO’s Onuaku threw cold water on SK’s pursuit with a rebound and a pass that led directly to the team’s fast break.

With a six-point deficit, SONO blocked a shot by SK’s Jamil Warney (22 points) with 1:42 left in regulation, and two free throws by Lee Jung-hyun made the score 80-72.

With the score at 90-75 with 2:12 left, Kim felt comfortable enough to bring Lawson, who had 15 points by then, to the bench.
