Dennis Schröder sets a new record in his Atlanta Hawks’ victory over Utah Jazz. In the final phase, he must primarily perform defensive tasks.
Dennis Schröder led the Atlanta Hawks to victory over Utah Jazz with a fantastic performance.
The German point guard scored a whopping 41 points in his 99:94 victory – the highest value in his NBA career. There were five rebounds and seven assists.
“It was unbelievable, but it’s all the better that we won,” said Schröder, who scored 17 points in the last quarter alone.

The Jazz had won 21 of their last 23 games and were also close to winning against the Hawks. However, the last five litters failed, so that the currently eighth-placed Western Conference player had to admit defeat.
The Hawks remain last in the Eastern Conference, despite Schröder’s brilliant performance.
“Dennis was special on the defensive tonight,” said head coach Mike Budenholzer, “He played great and did everything today. He also took care of Donovan Mitchell in the last three or four minutes of the game.”
In Jazz, Mitchell (24 points) and Ricky Rubio (23 points) were the best throwers.
