Dennis Schroder had nothing but good words to say about the superstar of the Dallas Mavericks, Luka Doncic.

Schroder said he always wants to compete against the best players in the NBA.

“He’s of course a great player. I like to compete against the best guys,” Schroder said about Doncic, via Ryan Ward of Lakers Nation.

Doncic flirted with the triple-double, with 30 points (9/21 shooting), nine rebounds and eight assists, as the Mavs defeated the Lakers (110-115).

On the other hand, Schroder had 25 points and 13 assists for the defending champions. The two teams will meet again on Saturday.
