Germany squeaked past Italy at EuroBasket 2017 on Tuesday behind 17 points and four assists from Dennis Schroder.
Schroder led the team in playing time with 30:58 and shot five of 12 on the day. Unfortunately he also committed six turnovers, and that sort of output will dampen his appeal in 9-cat leagues this season. He has top-50 upside in 8-cat leagues, however, and is shaping up like a fine pick amongst the second and third tier point guards. Across the court, Hawks teammate Marco Belinelli scored 12 points but shot just 4-of-18, including an ugly 2-of-9 from downtown.
