NBA: Dennis Schröder’s next gala too little

Dennis Schröder has lost a thriller with the Cleveland Cavaliers with the Boston Celtics. In the 89: 91 defeat, the German international is again the top scorer, but cannot prevent the Cavs from making a furious comeback.

Cleveland Cavaliers (9-5) – Boston Celtics (6-7) 91:89 (BOXSCORE)

With 28 points (10/19 FG, 2/4 threesomes, 6/6 FT), 4 rebounds and 3 assists, Schröder was the best scorer of the Celtics, just like the night before against Milwaukee. The 28-year-old even got the ball again in the last attack by the guests, but his heavy fadeaway jumper over Cedi Osman’s outstretched arms for possible extension only slapped the ring.

Instead, the Cavaliers made a comeback after they had just scored 9 points in the first quarter and were 56:74 behind with two minutes in the third section. Outstanding at the 35:15 run in the last 14 minutes was rookie Evan Mobley (19, 8/13 FG, 9 rebounds, 3 blocks), who was everywhere and spent most of the time on center.

For the decisive points, however, Darius Garland, who, like in Toronto a few days ago, had brought Cleveland the profitable points from the free throw line. The point guard pulled the foul on a determined drive against Marcus Smart 10 seconds before the end and converted both free throws ice cold. With 22 points (7/15 FG) and 6 assists, Garland was also the hosts’ busiest point collector.

At the beginning, however, nothing went for the Cavs, who could only score three field goals in 20 attempts in the first twelve minutes. Only then did the Cavs catch up thanks to Garland, but Schröder was just as hot and ensured with a few jumpers and a total of 17 points in the quarter that Boston went into the break with a 52:38 lead.
