Stephen Curry gets dissed, praised on his 29th birthday

Schroder: “I don’t understand coach’s decision. Maybe I’m too competitive, I don’t know. I’m just trying to be competitive, trying to win games. But I don’t get that one.”
Budenholzer: “Just a coach’s decision. We need to learn to play together and stay together for 48 minutes.”
Howard: “Listen, we’re a team. It’s OK if we have conversations. It’s not always conflict when you have a conversation with your coach or a team meeting. That’s what you’re supposed to do. So, by him wanting to have a meeting and talk, it’s great. It’s great for our team. It’s great for each other. We’re all open to it.”
Atlanta ended up losing a close game to Golden State, 119-111. Schroder was the team’s leading scorer at the time of his ejection, and may have had a large impact in the final half if he played. But Budenholzer obviously felt he needed to send a message to the team instead.
