He also played most actively in defense. He sometimes took charge of the defense of Kim Seon-hyung (187cm, G) and sometimes of Jamil Warney (200cm, C). He actively threw his body even in loose ball situations. This was the reason why Sono was able to continue chasing until the 4th quarter. Although he was scoreless, he received cheers from many fans. 

In response, Sono director Kim Seung-gi also opened his mouth. Coach Kim said in a post-game interview, “I have nothing to say about (Kim) Jin-yu. (Laughs) Jinyu had a rotation miss at the end, but I understand. You can’t say, ‘I’m not doing it right.’ He runs really hard. I’m running for my life, but from my perspective, I’m so thankful. It’s much better than the previous game. He left a compliment, saying, “The next game will also be better.”

Kim Jin-yu established himself as the league’s best ‘hustleman’ through last season. He played in 41 games, averaging 17 minutes and 52 seconds. His scoring average was 2.4 ppg. However, he added energy to the team by grabbing 4 rebounds per game. Dedicated to a place unseen. As a result, he had the honor of being selected as one of the top five defenders. It’s been his best year since his debut. 

Kim Jin-yu’s performance continues this season. Although he is not flashy, he is quietly performing his role. Although it is only two games, Kim Jin-yu is playing an average of 25 minutes and recording 3 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 assists. As always, he is showing performance that exceeds the record. Unfortunately, this fighting spirit does not lead to victory. Kim Jin-yu is more desperate than anyone else for his team to win.
