NBA: Maximilian Kleber’s knee injury
Schröder’s national team colleague Maximilian Kleber dropped out with the Dallas Mavericks for a short time due to a swollen knee.
Without the power forward, the team from Texas won against the Philadelphia 76ers with 107:98 thanks to a strong Luka Doncic (33 points). The Mavs are fifth in the Western Conference and remain on course for the playoffs.
The game was interrupted for 40 minutes in the first quarter because the ring was too loose. Doncic had pointed out the crooked basket to the referees after a converted three.
