Schroder scored 27 points (10-22 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT) while adding nine assists, two rebounds and a steal in 31 minutes during Saturday's 116-98 Game 3 win over the Wizards. He's been impressive so far in his first playoff series as the Hawks' starting point guard, averaging 25.0 points, 8.0 assists, 3.0 boards, 2.3 three-pointers and 1.0 steals through three games. The 23-year-old Schroder may need to find another gear if Atlanta is going to avoid a first-round exit, however.
Schroder recorded 23 points (8-21 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 6-8 FT), six assists, four rebounds and one steal across 38 minutes in Wednesday's 109-101 Game 2 loss to the Wizards. Schroder was aggressive offensively taking by far the most shots of any Atlanta player, but at 38.1 percent from the field he wasn't very efficient. Schroder was engaged in a heated point guard duel with John Wall for a majority of the night, but he was outgunned this time as the Hawks fell to 0-2 in the series.
Schroder scored 25 points (8-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT) while adding nine assists, three rebounds and a steal in 36 minutes during Sunday's 114-107 Game 1 loss to the Wizards. He did his best to keep pace with Washington's dynamic backcourt, but to no avail. Schroder has now scored at least 20 points in three of his last five playoff games dating back to last season, and figures to continue coming up big as the Hawks try to avoid a first-round exit.
Coach Mike Budenholzer said Schroder (foot) is good to go for Sunday's Game 1 against the Wizards, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Schroder was held out of the final game of the regular season with a sore foot, but was fully expected to be ready for the playoffs, so this was the expected course of action all along. Look for him to take on his normal role as the team's starting point guard and should be on a full workload as the team attempts to make a statement in the first game of their playoff run. In four games against the Wizards this season, Schroder averaged 15.3 points, 2.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists across 28.7 minutes. Jose Calderon should head back to a much smaller role off the bench with Schroder at full strength.
Schroder (foot) is probable for Sunday's matchup against the Wizards, KL Chouinard of ATLand29.com reports. Schroder missed the Hawks' final game of the regular season dealing with lingering foot soreness, though he will probably take part in the Hawks' first playoff game Sunday against the Wizards. If for some reason his condition worsens and he ends up sidelined, expect Jose Calderon or Malcolm Delaney to see extra run. His status should be updated after Sunday morning's shootaround.
