Boston Celtics alumni Dennis Schroder and Daniel Theis helped their German National Team survive a late onslaught from the Montenegrin National Team in EuroBasket play on Saturday afternoon, advancing from the knockout stage game with an 85-79 victory over Montenegro after falling behind by as much as 16 points early in the game.
The former Celtics floor general put up a solid 22 points, 4 rebounds, 8 assists, and a steal, but turned the ball over 5 times and shot just 28.6% from beyond the arc. Ex-Boston big man Daniel Theis had a quieter but more efficient game in the win, scoring 9 points and 4 boards, but picked up 5 personal fouls in just over 20 minutes of floor time, the War on Theis continuing.
Montenegro nearly upset Germany, coming to within 3 points of taking the lead in the game’s final minutes after coming back from a 27-point hole.
