Former Boston Celtics duo carry Germany to 109-107 win over Lithuania in double OT in EuroBasket play

·2 min read

Two former Boston Celtics were instrumental to the German National Team’s 109-107 double-overtime victory over the Lithuanian National Team in EuroBasket play on Sunday.

Germany received an outstanding game from former Celtics floor general Dennis Schroder, who put up 25 points, 5 rebounds, 8 assists and a steal in just over 40 minutes of floor time.

Schroder shot just 37% from the field, 20% from deep and 75% from the line. He committed four turnovers and four fouls in one of his less efficient games in recent international play, but he found other ways to help his team.

Ex-Boston big man Daniel Theis added another 11 points, 5 boards and 2 assists in 22:21 minutes of play, making up for Schroder’s yips with 55.6% shooting from the floor, 33.3% from 3-point range and no personal fouls or turnovers.
