Korea is down by three points late in the second quarter.
China is looking to pull away as they maintain possession on the offensive end.
A baseline inbound pass from a Chinese player landed right in the hands of Korean guard JooSung Kim.
Kim dashed the entire length of the floor before throwing down a viscous one handed dunk over a challenging Chinese superstar Yi Jilian.
That explosive dunk was a statement from the Korean national team expressing their presence to the Asian basketball elites.
Korea would play a consistent second half leading to a 63-59 victory over the 2011 FIBA Asia champs.
Everyone was on the edge of their seats throughout the entire game.
Former NBA star Yi Jianlian was a dominant force inside for China. He finished the contest with a double-double posting a game high 23-points and 10 rebounds.
Kim paced the way for Korea with 15-points.
South Korea resumes action this upcoming Friday with another challenging game against Iran, while China plays Malaysia tomorrow.
