Daegu Korea Gas Corporation, which has won four consecutive games, will face Ulsan Hyundai Mobis, which has lost all of its last nine showdowns.
Gas Corporation, which continues its relentless march without defeat with the new year 2024, will try to win its first five consecutive games of the season in an away game against Hyundai Mobis in 2023-24 Jeonggwanjang Professional Basketball at 2 p.m. on the 20th at Ulsan Dongcheon Gymnasium.
In the “Basketball Youngshin” match at home on the last day of last year, which was the most recent showdown, Gas Corporation overcame its inferiority in the early stages of the game with a third-quarter reversal, but finally gave up the game.
Earlier on November 18, Ulsan missed the victory in a fierce neck-and-neck race to extra time and unfortunately failed to escape consecutive losses against Mobis with 80-81.
Gas Corporation, which gave up all six showdowns last season, traditionally shows weakness when it meets Mobis.
Gas Corporation’s last victory over Mobis was on March 26, 2022, in an away match in Ulsan. At that time, after a fierce battle in the first half, Gas Corporation won the game in the second half and won a landslide 86-65 victory.
On this day, Gas Corporation Kim Nak-hyun scored 21 points, the most among the players of the two teams on the court, and added nine assists, three rebounds, and two steals to lead Gas Corporation to a victory over Mobis.
In the 2021-2022 season, Gas Corporation recorded a 2-4 record against Mobis in their first match of the season, along with the previously mentioned last match of the season.
On October 9, 2021, which was also the first game of its foundation, Korea Gas Corporation won 94-83 on an expedition to Ulsan, marking the first step of the team with a splendid victory.

Considering that Incheon Electronic Land, the predecessor of the Korea Gas Corporation, spent the last year of the team with a six-game loss to Mobis in the 2020-2021 season, the weakness of Mobis seems to have continued in the past.
With only two wins against Mobis in the last three seasons, it is also noteworthy that both wins are “Ulsan expeditions.”
Considering that the second round match, which sadly missed the victory after a fierce battle this season, was also held in Ulsan, Korea Gas Corporation is adding to its expectations for a five-game winning streak and an escape from Ulsan’s losing streak.
If Gas Corporation continues its upward trend in a situation where the power of the space of the difficult opponent, Mobis, and the Ulsan expedition, where there was hope when they meet, continues, the game gap with the sixth-ranked Mobis will be reduced to three games.
