The Boston Celtics had to admit defeat to the Washington Wizards. Even the points of the German basketball professional Dennis Schröder could not prevent the defeat.
Boston – 22 points from national basketball player Dennis Schröder did not give the Boston Celtics a win against the Washington Wizards.
After three defeats in the first five games, the NBA record champions have already been criticized. «We’re trying to find our way. We have to start with the defense, ”said Schröder after the 107: 116. “It starts with me and everyone else.” The 28-year-old from Braunschweig warned that everyone had to give full commitment over the entire season and keep their heads on the matter. He himself allowed too many points from his opponents.
Coach Ime Udoka still praised the new signing from the Los Angeles Lakers, who came from the bench: “His pace changes our game. We get baskets so much easier. He finds his rhythm slowly, but overall more has to come from our bank. ”
With four defeats already, the Orlando Magic are around the brothers Franz and Moritz Wagner. At 111: 120 against the Charlotte Hornets, the hosts went into the last quarter with a two-point lead, but were clearly left behind with 18:29 points. For Franz Wagner, coach Jamahl Mosley had a lot of recognition after another good performance with 15 points: «Franz got better in every game. How he recognizes situations, how he builds moves, ”he said. “His versatility on the offensive and defensive is a big part of what Franz is.”
With four wins from five games, the Hornets are currently one of the best-form teams in the NBA. Defending champions Milwaukee Bucks conceded their second defeat in their fifth game at 108: 113 against the Minnesota Timberwolves, while the Lakers lost against the previously winless Oklahoma City Thunder for the third time this season. Superstar LeBron James was absent again because of his ankle problems.
