Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer checked in with Rick and John with advice and a team update.
Coach Bud talked to us about how he moves on from a tough loss and gave some advice to Falcons fans. Budenholzer talked about playing Houston last week and seeing all the Hawks fans in the crowd that night for their comeback win. He explained Wednesday’s win against the Nuggets and how he was able to focus the team to get the win. Coach Bud described how cool it was to get off to a fast start Wednesday night and how the ball movement by the players made it happen.
Budenholzer agreed with Rick’s assessment of Paul Millsap and how he was voted to his fourth All Star Game as a member of the Hawks. He mentioned that he had seen the Charles Oakley incident from Wednesday and said he isn’t important enough to be heckled like that and to throw somebody out of the game. Coach Bud believes the team has peace of mind since they took Millsap off the trading block before the trade deadline and it has shown on the court.
