Washington takes place against disappointing Celtics
© Supplied by Sports.fr Basketball - NBA: Washington takes place against disappointing Celtics Six points to 3 of 14 on shots in 23 minutes. This statistic alone sums up the little nightmare that Boston experienced on the Washington floor this Sunday. Like Jayson Tatum, who had not scored so few points since a game against Milwaukee in the Orlando bubble, the Celtics did not exist during this meeting. Perhaps not wide awake for a kick off at 1 p.m.

The German basketball players will play from June 29th to July 4th in Croatia for a ticket for the Summer Games in Tokyo, which should start three weeks later on July 23. First it goes in Split against Russia and Mexico. In the semifinals, Croatia, Tunisia or Brazil could wait before the final.
For Rödl it is still difficult to assess which North American professionals he can rely on. "We have to wait and see how the season goes for everyone and the talks," he said. It could be tight for Dennis Schröder, because the playmaker of the selection of the German Basketball Federation (DBB) is said to have good chances in the title race with the Los Angeles Lakers. The play-offs of the NBA are provisionally scheduled until July 22nd.
Rödl reckons that he might be "spoiled for choice" again in the big positions: "And then you have to see who is available." In addition to Schröder, Daniel Theis (Boston Celtics), Maximilian Kleber (Dallas Mavericks), Isaiah Hartenstein (Denver Nuggets), Moritz Wagner and Isaac Bonga (both Washington Wizards) play in the world's best basketball league.
