"Never touch me like that," Schroder said to his coach.

Theis and Schroder have developed an incredible chemistry on the court. However, before the timeout was called, the two had a failed alley-oop attempt that caused Herbert to call the timeout.

In the end, the Germans were able to work their early game struggles and managed to get the win against Slovenia. Germany 100-71, with Schroder dropping 24 points and 10 assists, while Theis added 14 points and seven rebounds.

For Slovenia, Doncic did most of the work with 23 points, six rebounds and six assists.
