MANILA, Philippines—Justin Gutang and the Changwon LG Sakers suffered a heartbreaking loss, 92-91, to the Seoul SK Knights and fell to 0-2 in their Korean Basketball League semifinals series on Sunday at Changwon Gymnasium.

Changwon couldn’t hold on to its one-point lead in the final seconds after Leon Williams scored on a putback with 0.6 tenths of a second left to lift Seoul.

The LG Sakers drew quality minutes from Justin Gutang, who collected nine points, four rebounds, three assists and a steal in a losing effort.


Reggie Perry’s double-double of 31 points and 13 rebounds also went down the drain as Changwon moved on the verge of elimination in the best-of-five semis.

Jameel Warney powered Seoul to victory with 40 points and 11 boards.

The SK Knights go for the sweep and a finals berth on Tuesday.

Rhenz Abando and the Anyang KGC are tied with the Goyang Carrot Jumpers through two games in the other semifinal pairing.
