Germany wins EuroBasket bronze vs. Poland with boost from Boston Celtics alum Dennis Schroder

·2 min read

Germany won the European Basketball Championship bronze medal with an 82-69 victory over Poland on Sunday. The win was driven by former Boston Celtic Dennis Schroder.

The German floor general had another excellent game, putting up 26 points, a rebound, 6 assists and a steal in just under 33 minutes of floor time. Schroder shot a very good 7-of-10 from the field, 4-of-7 from 3 and 8-of-9 from the charity stripe. Fellow former Celtic Daniel Theis added 9 points, 6 boards, an assist and as many steals in the win, shooting a more modest 3-of-7 from the field, 1-of-2 from deep and 2-of-3 from the line.

The victory gives Germany its first EuroBasket medal since 2005, when it won silver.

“That’s pretty tough, (because) we were so close to this bronze,” said Poland’s leading scorer Michal Sokolowski via Eurohoops.
