The NBA, like life, takes many turns. And ‘little’ Dennis Schröder, the guy who had an impact in the EuroBasket with Germany, until Sergio Scariolo came to Spain and told him enough, well, he’s a direct witness and can tell about it. A ‘weak’ point guard of only 1.85 and 78 kg declined the Lakers’ lush renewal offer – four seasons and 80 million – to sign for the Celtics a few years ago, but returned to his roots this year. Exceptionally European for being the man of the purple and gold nights. Because it already was with 32 points against the Hawks last week and it was again this morning in Jordi Fernandez’s Lakers’ improbable win against the Sacramento Kings (134-136).
LeBron once again defied his age and ‘laughed’ at his old age, scoring 37 points – with an impressive 14/28 shooting -, 8 rebounds and 7 assists but the German had to come to his aid. And two offensive free throws with 3 seconds to go with the team from Darwin Hamm broke the tie at 134 and gave the Purple and Gold team their fifth consecutive win. Schroder only needed another stellar performance of 27 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists. The 29-year-old point guard shared the European starting five with Lorenzo Brown, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Rudy Gobert and Willy Hernángómez and went from unimportant to essential.
