Despite a massive game from Dennis Schroder, Spain ousts Germany 96-91 from the EuroBasket

·2 min read

It would be one of his best games of the 2022 European Basketball Championship for his German National Team, but Dennis Schroder’s big game would not prove to be enough to get Germany past the Spanish National Team in EuroBasket knockout play on Friday, Schroder’s squad falling 96-91.

The former Boston Celtics floor general put up 30 points, a rebound, 8 assists, and 2 steals in the loss while shooting 11-of-17 overall and 3-of-7 from 3. His fellow Celtics alum Daniel Theis added another 10 points, 3 boards, and an assist in Germany’s attempt to make the gold medal game.

That honor will fall to Spain, who will now face France for the 2022 EuroBasket title thanks in part to another Boston alum.

That would be Spanish big man Juancho Hernangomez, who chipped in 13 points, 3 rebounds, and a block off of the bench for his Spanish National Team.
