(sid). Maxi Kleber catapulted himself into the air, cleared the ball and delighted not only his teammates with his defensive action. “The next block of glue. He’s going to be a German Shepherd, ”said the commentator on US television, impressed by the national basketball player, who played a major role in the 104-99 win over the San Antonio Spurs.
It was hardly possible to get past defense expert Kleber – with six blocks the Big Man set his personal record in the NBA and also delivered a double-double with twelve points and ten rebounds. The Slovenian star player Luka Doncic was the best scorer with 25 points.
For Kleber, the number 42 of the Mavs, the appearance was also an important success personally and a statement to the new trainer Jason Kidd to give him a good role in the rotation.
