Down two games to the Wizards, Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer talked playoff chances with Rick and John in his weekly segment “On The Court with Coach Bud.”
Coach Bud described the games against Washington and what they need to do better Saturday if they want to change the outcome. He mentioned watching the film on John Wall and what they need to do contain him and limit the shots and points he has been getting.
Budenholzer talked to us about his strategy to combat Wall and the Wizards based on experiences where he has game-planned for star players in the past. Coach Bud gave us his reasoning why Dwight Howard was on the bench in the last five minutes of the game Wednesday. He talked about the physical play between the Hawks and Wizards and Paul Millsap speaking out about the MMA style the Wizards were getting away with.
