Preseason rolls on with a matchup with the new look Cavs

The Atlanta Hawks will face against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena in a preseason exhibition on Wednesday October 4th in Cleveland, Ohio. In this game we should see a little bit of the whole preseason roster for the Atlanta Hawks.

The Hawks have another chance to master their Pick and Roll scheme which they struggled with last season. Last game we saw good flashes of what the new and improved Pick and Roll scheme looks like with Dennis Schroeder and Dewayne Dedmon, who is clearly a better fit for Atlanta.

The wings of the Atlanta Hawks (Kent Bazemore and Taurean Prince) also have a chance for a better showing despite their struggles from the field in the last preseason matchup. (Kent Bazemore 0/3 0 Points, Taurean Prince 1/6 3 Points).

Matchup to Watch

Dennis Schroder vs Derrick Rose. Dennis Schroder had a decent outing on Sunday against The Miami Heat with 12 Points off of 6/17 shooting, with five assists and four rebounds in 22 minutes. Coming off his recent arrest Dennis Schroeder has been very professional in handling the situation. Hopefully he can maintain this leadership role he has.
