VIDEO: Thunder’s Dennis Schroder stays down for long time in disbelief after foul call
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dennis Schroder is having a terrific season for the team this season. One thing that was not terrific, in his opinion, was a call a referee made in their Tuesday night game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Dennis Schroder was in absolute disbelief at the call, but instead of getting up and arguing the call like many would, the Thunder backup guard instead stayed lay prostrate for a long time in protest of the supposed injustice.
The 26-year-old native of Germany is having one of his best seasons off the bench for the Thunder, putting up 18.6 points per game on a career-high 56.6 true shooting percentage.
Schroder is mostly being tasked with being a sparkplug scorer off the bench behind Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Chris Paul, which is exactly what suits his skill set the best.
Fortunately for Schroder, the Thunder came out with the 111-103 victory over the Nets in overtime. For what it’s worth, the 26-year-old guard finished with 14 points, four rebounds and five assists in the game.
Paul led OKC in the OT victory, registering 28 points, six rebounds and three dimes, while Gilgeous-Alexander chipped in 22 markers on to of four boards and two dimes.
