Hawks coach Mike Bundeholzer and point guard Dennis Schroder said they’ve moved on after Schroder was displeased after he was benched for the final eight-plus minutes at the Knicks on Sunday night. “We talked about it,” Budenholer said at Hawks shootaround Tuesday before their game at the Cavaliers on Tuesday night. “I think he understands how important he is and everything he can do for us. I think he’s in a good place.”
After the game, Schroder said he thought he should have been on the floor at the finish and that Budenholzer should have explained to him why he wasn’t. Schroder said Tuesday that, after the talk with Budenholzer, he’s fine with the coach’s decision. “Of course,” Schroder said. “That was his decision. We almost won the game. We go into the next one. We need to win tonight. Just try to focus on that.”
James (6-foot-8, 250 pounds) then took over primary defensive duties on Schroder (6-1, 172) to close the half and continued covering the super-quick guard in the second half. “He was kicking our butts in the first half,” said James of Schroder. “My teammates asked me to take the challenge. I wanted the challenge.” James seemed to relish the chance to test his skills against the point guard. “I can’t give that up,” he said.
