Saturday, newly acquired point guard Dennis Schroder took part in his debut outing as a member of the Brooklyn Nets in what proved to be a tremendous night both from an individual and overall team standpoint.

Serving as the third reserve to come off the bench, the veteran put forth a commanding effort in 27 minutes of action, as he dropped 15 points and 12 assists on 46.2 percent shooting from the floor and 60.0 percent shooting from distance, having him join James Harden and Kelvin Ransey as just the third player in franchise history to register 15+ points and 10+ assists in their first game.

Led by Schroder's impressive combination of scoring and distribution skills the Nets' played one of their best offensive games on the season, as they converted on a highly efficient 56.3 percent from the floor and 50.0 percent from deep en route to a commanding 123-103 triumph over the visiting San Antonio Spurs.

Throughout the contest and following the sound of the final buzzer, fans in attendance at Barclays Center were heard chanting their new guard's name, something the veteran noted he appreciated during his post-game on-court interview.

Of course, Schroder would only expand on his debut experience with the Nets in his individual presser, where he joyfully described the atmosphere as nothing short of "great."

"Obviously it's great. I'm glad we got the win. I think that's the most important but of course, appreciation is there and I love that the fans [cheered my name]. Big time for me."

Though Schroder may not be the top-flight, established star Nets fans were hoping to see the franchise attain at this year's trade deadline, an 11-year veteran the point guard possesses proven ball-handling, scoring, and table-setting skills that this team desperately could use more of within their arsenal and these attributes were on full display during his debut.

From Cam Thomas' electrifying 25 point performance to Mikal Bridges' 15 points on a highly efficient 50 percent shooting from distance, the 30-year-old's play proved to be rather complimentary for Brooklyn's studs and, in turn, helped them snap a three-game losing streak.

Hopefully this is the first of many wins to come with Schroder now gracing the club's backcourt.
