Schroder and okc start new nba season with loss

Dennis schroder has failed to start his seventh NBA season. The national basketball player suffered a 95-100 (46-49) defeat at the hands of the utah jazz in his first match with the oklahoma city thunder in the north american professional league.

The 26-year-old from braunschweig had a mixed performance in salt lake city, scoring only three points but grabbing six rebounds and four assists. If the newly formed thunder are to make the playoffs again this season after the departure of superstar russell westbrook to the houston rockets, a clear improvement will be necessary in the coming months.

"We gave this win away, but it still feels good the way we played," said set-up man chris paul. The 34-year-old came to OKC for westbrook and is now expected to lead the team. In his debut for the thunder, the nine-time all-star scored 22 points; only rookie shai gilgeous-alexander was better on his team with 26 digits. "We gave away too many throws near the basket," criticized coach billy donovan.

At his funeral, andy fischer of the district youth council was particularly pleased with the "lively youth work that is alive and well." For the first time this year, there was a tour of all the participating associations and institutions before the event began.
