Yeah, like I said there are certain teams you can get away without have a PG on the floor and the Knicks lineup yesterday was one but in a blowout it doesn’t matter. Schroder’s value on this team is so great not only for his balk handling and penetrating but in checking opponents quick 1’s. That’s the thing with this group……you want Smart on the floor to defend the scoring wing but if they have a quick 1 you need Schroder on that end too.I don't think DS is that much better than JRich both sides of the floor considered down the stretch. Ime's switch scheme means that DS isn't guarding 1s anyways (he got torched by Fournier Thursday night) and if the Jays are going to have the ball in their hands down the stretch, he doesn't provide the necessary spacing or movement.
Disclaimer: For the record as most know but to be clear it isn’t about Schroder as I’ve never been a huge fan but that of a player with his skillset that this team doesn’t have and really needs in many matchups.
