The German National Team lost to Luka Doncic’s Slovenian National Team 88-80 to fall to 3-1 in EuroBasket play on Tuesday afternoon. Former Boston Celtics Dennis Schroder and Daniel Theis’ find their team in a three-way tie for first place in EuroBasket’s Group B as a result.
Schroder had the better game of the two. The former Boston floor general put up 19 points and 5 assists in slightly less than 30 minutes of floor time. Theis chipped in 8 points, 3 rebounds and 1 assist in a little less than 18 minutes of game time.
The former Celtics center got himself into foul trouble in a manner Boston fans can recall all too well, the War on Theis resulted in the Salzgitter native picking up five personal fouls despite his limited time on the court.

The loss — Germany’s first in the group stage of play — means the team needs Slovenia to lose to France for it to have a chance to win the group outright.
