They erupted for 30 points to take a 6-point halftime advantage 39:33. Germany dominated in the second half. They limited Ukraine to 14 points in the third term to open an 11-point lead. Germany outgunned their opponents in the fourth period and raced to the win. Robin Benzing (208-F-89) delivered 17 points for the winners. Olexandr Mishula (192-SG-92) sank 12 points for Ukraine. Artem Pustovyi (218-C-92, agency: Stanislav Ryzhov) had 11 points in the loss.

Germany: Dennis Schroeder 32, Robin Benzing 17, Johannes Voigtmann (211-C-92) 8

International,

As usual, thanks for providing your unique knowledge of, and attention to, global basketball to the board.

Do you know when this tournament will be over?  Schroder is an experienced NBA guard who is a starter in Atlanta.  Theis, however, is an NBA rookie.  I'm glad he's getting some game reps in but I'd also like to see him in Boston sooner rather than later so he can bond with the other players who have already shown up in Waltham and to spend some time learning out playbook.

Nice that he was the top rebounder.  We sure need that, big-time.  If he can rebound well for us and defend like he did in Europe he should get solid, predictable minutes.

Solid game from C's new addition Daniel Theis in opening game of Eurobasket for Germany: 7 points and game-high 8 rebounds in 21 minutes.

MY NOTE:  I'll take 7 points and 8 boards in 21 minutes, no problemo.  Throw in that he is primarily known as an excellent defender, which isn't showing up in this boxscore highlight, and Danny might have pulled off a mini-coup here for almost no $.

International,

At first, I didn't know who to look for.  I'm not familiar enough with him yet to recognize him from a distant camera shot if I cannot see his number 10.

Then, in the first sequence, I saw a white guy just swallow up another guy who was trying to put a move on 3' from the rim.  Yep, sure enough, the defender was Theis.

I don't know about his BBIQ, I'm assuming if he's been playing professional basketball in almost any high quality pro league it can't be too bad, but if his IQ is good then his learning curve should flatten out nicely for us.  I've watched every piece of film on him you've provided and as much other film of him as I have been able to find since his signing was announced.  I think he could be a good one for us.

He's only 6'9"?  He looks longer.  Are the rest of the players out there in this game just shorter than NBA players, is that why he looks so long?  Unfortunately, Euros don't publish wingspans but he he looks like he has a good one.


bob
P.S.  I saw Dennis Schroder waving his towel on the bench when Theis grabbed a board and a putback.  Hopefully he's telling Theis about the NBA.  Theis is a banger. I think Cowens is really gonna love this kid. He doesn't look like he's afraid to stick his nose in for the ball.

That's why I believe Horford, Baynes, and Theis are enough at the Center spot.

Celts don't need to sign another big for that 15th spot on the roster.

Fierce,

Suppose one of those 3 gets hurt? Or needs to take personal time off because they just had a baby or something like that? If one of them is out, for any reason, then Brad can't go big for very long because we'll only have 2 players and nobody to spell them.

We've got more shooters than a tequila bar. We need length.

Bob.
Theis is only 6-9 but with a wingspan of a 7 footer.
The Ukranian team has two players over 7 feet ,one is Slava Kravtsov 7-1 who played 2 seasons with the Phoenix Suns and currently is playing in China and the other is a 7-2 named Artem Purtovyi ,he is playing in Spain .This team was coached for 3 years by Mike Fratello and that team is full of good fundaments.

Usually teams only have 3 bigs.

I just think it's best if the Celts not rush signing a big.
Keeping the roster spot open for flexibility is best in my opinion.

No need to rush.
I think the Celts can sign or trade for a big down the road.

Bobby Jones-2.

the more I see of him, the more I think that is not only who he looks like build wise but his play also reminds me of Jones.

defensive first, good rebounder with high BB IQ.

offense limited to mostly inside.

I'm not saying Theis will be as good as Bobby Jones was, just that's who he reminds me of.

kdp,

He shot 41% from 3 last year. He doesn't take a ton, he took 1.3 3pt fgas in 19mpg, but he hit a very nice %. The only year he shot under 36% was his rookie year, when he was 20 or so. Marcus Smart would kill for 36%. My money says he'll be taking a lot more after he feels comfortable. As we all know Brad is 3-happy. He wants players to go to their sweet-spots and shoot when they are open. As a relative unknown Theis will be left alone at the arc more than other, more well-scouted, players until he proves that's a mistake.

Bobby Jones could be a very good comparison, I'd certainly like to think he is like him, and Bobby Jones was one of the best defenders of his era.

kdp,

Credit to Zizic for not giving up but that was, what? 3 straight blocks on dunks at the rim?

Theis certainly got off the ground faster and higher than Zizic , at least in that series of plays.

he does seem to be  a quick leaper for sure, even on the second one.

is the Euro 3 line the same as the NBA? I thought it was shorter a bit.


I guess I am showing my age with the Bobby Jones comparisons though...

kdp,

Looks about the same. Can't be more than a few inches off.

Yeah, old age sneaks up on you, doesn't it? One minute you're the kid, next thing you know you're referring to everybody as "a kid". :-)

For anyone interested in Theis, you can watch the games live (in German)
First a link to the schedule:
https://www.tz.de/sport/mehr/eurobasket-2017-basketball-em-live-im-tv-und-live-stream-8632660.html
Secondly a link to the game:
https://www.telekomsport.de/basketball/eurobasket2017

Theis came in a few minutes ago and promptly stole the ball from the man he was guarding and followed that up a little later with a slam dunk. He looks sensationally good.

Berlin,

What was that link we watched the games on last year again? I had to reboot my operating system and all my browser history got obliterated.

Theis is a very intriguing player.

I went back and watched some highlights. We know that highlights only show the highlights and not the lowlights but it seems very apparent that he is going to be able to help Boston. I think he is an upgrade over Jerebko. He is fluid and plays above the rim.

Theis is #10, in red.  He gets a breakaway dunk @ :56
