Courtesy of Marcin Gortat Twitter @Washington Wizards had a team dinner tonight in Philly. A lil team building #WizardsTalk http://t.co/wYxK8DS7U6

Jorge Castillo

Nene and Gortat declined to speak after the game.

Trey Kerby

Another sweet Wizards move was trading a first round pick for Marcin Gortat, signing him to a big deal and then benching him fourth quarters

Jon Krawczynski

#TWolves 42, #Wizards 42 at half. KMart 16, KG 3 pts 1-4, 3 rebs, 2 blks. Gortat 9, 10 rebs for WAS. Wolves 36%, Wiz 38%

Carla Peay

Over under on number of minutes Marcin Gortat plays in the 4th quarter tonight? #WizTalk.

Jerry Zgoda

Porter, Nene, Gortat, Wall & Temple start for Wizards. It's Ricky, KMartin, WIggins, Pek and...I forget the fifth guy

Rashad Mobley

The Shortest Presser of Marcin Gortat’s Career (after another 4th quarter absence): truthaboutit.net/2015/02/marcin…

Royce Young

Marcin Gortat on the Wizards' frustration level: 'Out the roof. Really high' cbsprt.co/1BtEIjX

Mike Prada

Watched Warriors-Wiz this morning. Don't think Gortat in the fourth makes the difference. Warriors still get whatever shot they want...

Chris Miller

Marcin Gortat Minutes Played – By Quarter This Season 1st 621 2nd 253 3rd 620 4th 154 (0 in 4th quarter vs Warriors)

Adi Joseph

Marcin Gortat, normally among the most loquacious players in the NBA: http://t.co/sNpi67Gs9t

Jorge Castillo

Gortat clearly frustrated. Usually has a lot to say but not tonight.

John Schuhmann

Marcin Boozer. MT @Jorge Castillo: Gortat asked if he’s discouraged/surprised he didn’t play in the 4th after playing well: “Next question.”

Jorge Castillo

Gortat was asked if he’s discouraged/surprised he didn’t play in the 4th after playing well since break: “Next question.”

Raul Barrigon

Most important underrated players to their teams. Examples? Gortat and Horford. bit.ly/1D93kcB http://t.co/0NYhqJ1kZQ

Jorge Castillo

Wittman: Gortat didn’t play 4th to counter small lineup. Asked if Gortat’s size would’ve been advantage he said it was decision he made.

Tas Melas

Seems to be a prejudice against playing Polish and Lithuanian centers in 4th quarters. Gortat and Valanciunas glued to their benches.

Andrew Sharp

There's 3 minutes left and Gortat's still not on the floor in the fourth quarter.

Rusty Simmons

#Warriors 54, Wizards 51 (half) Curry 13 pts/6 ast, Speights 11 pts, Green 7 pts, Thompson 6 pts; Gortat 12 pts/6 reb, Pierce 7 pts/3 reb.

Rashad Mobley

Bad spacing between Nene and Gortat right now. They are making it difficult for Wall to maneuver

Jorge Castillo

Wall floater as time expires cuts Warriors lead to 30-28 after 1Q. Curry = 13p, 4a; Gortat = 8p, 4r; Wall = 6p, 3a. Wizards have 9 turnovers

Rashad Mobley

Compared to the last two games, Gortat looks much more aggressive on both ends of the floor. Its still early though

Jorge Castillo

Kevin Seraphin the first off the bench for Nene. Wittman went with Seraphin/Gortat frontline Sunday and is doing it again.

Jorge Castillo

Interesting that Warriors got Bogut on Nene and Green on Gortat.

Rusty Simmons

GSW at WAS starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Green, Bogut; WAS -- Wall, Temple, Pierce, Nene, Gortat.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards starters: Wall, Temple, Pierce, Nene, Gortat. #Warriors: Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Green, Bogut.

Mike Prada

Someone’s gotta force Gortat to listen to a recording of Hubie Brown shouting “TWO HANDS”

Vincent Ellis

Drummond with a spectacular blocked shot of Gortat. Force of Gortat's momentum forced him to the floor. #Pistons

Chris Miller

Gortat and Humphries a combine 13 for 13 from the field 27 points in the first half. Wiz up 52-47 on Pistons #WizardsTalk

Jorge Castillo

Jackson concludes 1st half w/1st 5 pts as a Piston to cut Wizards lead to 52-47 at half. Gortat + Humphries = 27 pts on 13/13 shooting.

Jorge Castillo

And Gortat now has 16. 8-for-8 from the floor.

Jorge Castillo

Gortat now has 14 pts, tied for the most he’s scored in a game since scoring 20 vs. Philly on Jan. 19.

Rashad Mobley

The Wizards big men have 28 of the 42 points. But Nene has 3 fouls and Seraphin and Gortat have 2 apiece

Jorge Castillo

Nene tries taking a charge but picks up his 3rd foul. In come Gortat and Wall.

Rashad Mobley

Gortat came to play but he's getting no help. Wizards are still letting opposing 3pt shooters run wild, while not hitting any of their own

Jorge Castillo

Pistons up 27-22 after 1Q. Gortat = 12p, 5r. Caldwell-Pope = 10p; Drummond = 8p, 4r. Pistons 4/7 from 3, Wizards 0/2.

Jorge Castillo

Gortat had 8 points and 6 rebounds Friday. He has 10 points and 4 rebounds in 9 minutes today. Pistons up 19-18.

Jorge Castillo

Gortat hook shot over Drummond. He’s got 8 pts on 4/4 shooting.

Mike Prada

The rarely-seen Gortat/Seraphin frontcourt. Huh.

Rashad Mobley

Pierce to Gortat for the Wizards opening score. MESSAGE!

Mike Prada

I empathize with Gortat because Wizards guards (esp. Wall) can over-funnel their guy to him. But that's also Gortat's job to be the anchor.

Mike Prada

About Pierce and Gortat calling each other out in the media: Sad thing is, both are right. Gotta play great D yourself AND help each other

Dave McMenamin

Marcin Gortat sums up the Wizards' 38-point loss to the Cavs: "We didn't play any defense or offense. That's how you lose a game"

Jorge Castillo

Gortat said team’s downfall was relying too much on help defense. Let’s just say Pierce didn’t agree.

Jorge Castillo

Gortat: “We lost our edge. We got our ass punked.“

Mike Prada

Wittman just pulled Gortat for Drew Gooden, so we may not see Gortat again for a while.

Jorge Castillo

LeBron James just had his way with the Wizards’ second unit + Gortat.

Mike Prada

There’s the value of Tristan Thompson — rooted Gortat out on the glass.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards starters: Wall, Porter, Pierce, Nene, Gortat. #Cavs: Irving, Smith, James, Love, Mozgov.

Jorge Sierra
