Frank Madden

Helluva block from Zaza on Gortat. Triggers break Giannis to Knight for short floater.

Rashad Mobley

Randy Wittman did not appear to be happy with Gortat's defensive rotation on that Brandon Knight layup

Steve Aschburner

Much better exchange this time between Wittman and Gortat at start of timeout. #rumppat

Steve Aschburner

Heated exchange on court heading to timeout between Wizards' Wittman and Gortat.

Steve Aschburner

I assume Marcin Gortat's is the starter lizard mohawk #nolegsheadortail http://t.co/OsHx3oHrnK

Steve Aschburner

Solid downshifting by Brandon Knight to race downcourt at Gortat, make jump-pass, race to corner, then loft in 3FG.

Steve Aschburner

Jabari Parker giving up significant bulk to Nene, but just ripped rebound away from him and Gortat.

Jorge Castillo

Wizards sticking with the same starting 5: Wall, Temple, Pierce, Nene, Gortat.

Michael Lee

Marcin Gortat on CLE: “They were just sloppy.” wapo.st/1AypjNs (via @Jorge Castillo) #wizards

Jorge Castillo

Marcin Gortat on the #Cavs: "I think they were just sloppy." #Wizards wapo.st/1Axm6h2

Jorge Castillo

More Gortat on Cavs: “There were a lot of players that didn’t know what was going on at some points.” #Wizards

Jorge Castillo

Gortat on Cavs: “I think they were just sloppy. You realized that they don’t feel comfortable doing what they were doing.” #Wizards

Jorge Castillo

Wizards start how they did Weds vs. Mavs: Gortat in the post. Like Nowitzki, they’re going to go at Love.

Jorge Castillo

Bradley Beal isn’t starting. It’s Garrett Temple again. Wall, Temple, Pierce, Nene, Gortat.

Jorge Castillo

More Gortat on the Cavs: “At the end of the day they have some players, but it doesn’t mean they’re already champs.” #Wizards

Jorge Castillo

Marcin Gortat on the Cavs: “We don’t like teams that are trying to be like us — really good. It’s just business.”

Rashad Mobley

Monta Ellis is doing his best Kobe impression tonight. He has 18 of the Mavs 23 pts. Gortat has 13. 29-23 Wiz after 1st Q .

Jorge Castillo

Bradley Beal’s 1st points come on a long jumper. Wizards lead 27-19. Gortat has 11 pts.

Jorge Castillo

Gortat said going at Nowitzki defensively would be a key and the Wizards are doing it early. 4 early points for Gortat.

Earl K. Sneed

After a Gortat score to open the night, Monta Ellis gets the @Dallas Mavericks on the board with a jumper. #DALatWAS

Mike Prada

Introducing GORTAT SAYS, a regular @SarahKogod / @Marcin Gortat joint. Really excited about this. youtube.com/watch?v=jdYd6X… http://t.co/nl0rfBJs3h

Jorge Castillo

Marcin Gortat: “Dirk’s going to be Dirk. It looks like he goes half-a-mile-an-hour, but he still gets you 30.”

Jorge Castillo

If there is ever a time for a Wall-Beal-Porter-Pierce-Gortat lineup the next 2 games vs. the 2 best stretch-4s in the league might be it.

Adi Joseph

Gortat and Nene have been great at exploiting the Magic's weak rim protection. Yet the Wizards don't seem to want to go there every time.

Adi Joseph

When Marcin Gortat is taking long twos, the Wizards' lead tends to evaporate. The Magic have cut it to 52-48.

Evan Dunlap

If Marcin Gortat ever makes a game-winning shot, I hope someone has the presence of mind to use the headline Marcin Of Victory.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards starters: Wall, Temple, Pierce, Nene, Gortat. #Magic: Oladipo, Fournier, Harris, Frye, Vucevic.

John Denton

Key tonight for @Orlando Magic will be handling @John Wall / @Marcin Gortat pick-n-roll. Wall a better J now & ORL must decide over or under screens

Jorge Castillo

Marcin Gortat on Kevin Seraphin's jump hook: "...keep going to it 300 more times until they stop you.” wapo.st/1EILtvZ #Wizards

Mike Wise

What I liked about that last Wizards possession is Nene and John Wall turned a two-man game into a Gortat dunk. Very clutch.

Matt Dery

Gortat. Guy is cool.

Jorge Castillo

Gortat bucket gives Wizards 1st lead, 63-61.

Mike Prada

Then there’s Gortat laying way back on a Jennings screen and roll when Joel Anthony is the screener. Given context of the game, not smart

Jorge Castillo

Pierce-to-Gortat alley-oop. Most importantly, Gortat did that Polish Hammer thing again.

Vincent Goodwill

I swear Marcin Gortat looks like a character from "Street Fighter"

Vincent Goodwill

Drummond, Smith, Monroe, KCP, Jennings the first 5 for the Pistons. Wall, Temple, Pierce, Nene, Gortat the first 5 for the Wiz

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards starters: Wall, Temple, Pierce, Nene, Gortat. #Pistons going w/their big 5: Jennings, Caldwell-Pope, Smith, Monroe, Drummond.

Vincent Ellis

Gortat (from Poland) bought SVG the Rosetta Stone for Polish. #memorylane

Vincent Ellis

SVG told a story about Gortat's rookie season. Gortat wasn't getting something right and SVG told him: “Maybe I need to speak Polish?”

Candace Buckner

Kris Humphries in for Gortat.

Candace Buckner

Marcin Gortat with the most demonstrative protest of a foul call, and ref Kane Fitzgerald had to tech him up

Conrad Brunner

T on Gortat, possibly for protesting his 2nd foul, but more likely for that mohawk.

Jorge Castillo

Wizards decide not to double Hibbert and he hits a turnaround over Gortat. He went 0 of 7 Wednesday.

Conrad Brunner

Tonight's starters #Pacers: Sloan, Hill, Copeland, Scola, Hibbert Miles out (migraine) #Wizards: Wall, Temple, Pierce, Nene, Gortat

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards going with same starting 5: Wall, Temple, Pierce, Nene, Gortat.

Ryan Wolstat

JV said game plan was to guard Nene, have Amir take Gortat, who had played well against him in past Shown bad Nene stats. “Guess it worked."

Mike Prada

Gortat cannot be beat to that rebound.

Jorge Castillo

Nene with 6 straight points and then the drive and dish to Gortat to cut Raptors lead to 63-45.

Chris Miller

Wizards down by 24 at the half in Toronto. Wall 0 for 6 2 pts. Gortat, Humphries, Porter Jr. each with 6 pts.

Mike Ganter

Lowry has already been on the receiving end of a Pierce elbow and now Gortat just threw one his way too. Marked man?
