Schroder combined for only 12 minutes off the bench in his first two appearances. He has logged 34 minutes over his last two games on back-to-back nights.
"My confidence, as I've told you, is through the roof. Coach trusts me now," Schroder said, per the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "I try to do everything on defense first and help the team get the energy going."
Schroder scored just four points on 2 of 5 shooting, missing his lone attempt from downtown in the second quarter. He also contributed with four rebounds, three assists and one steal in a 111-105 loss. He is averaging 5.6 points and 2.4 assists over his last five appearances.
Schroder was forced to leave Tuesday's game against the Raptors in the second half due to a sprained left ankle. He is averaging just 3.9 points and 1.9 assists over 36 appearances.
