REMINDER: GORTAT IS AWESOME. http://t.co/zqWgOddsGm
Gortat got up slowly after getting fouled going to the basket. He’s walking gingerly to the free-throw line. Looks like he hurt an ankle.
Jacque Vaughn receives a technical foul -- likely for wanting a carry on Marcin Gortat. Vaughn's right on that one.
From the bench, Gortat yelled out to Porter to post up on Ridnour. He settled for a jumper.
Wiz definitely need to consider staggering Gortat and Nene’s minutes, though. Humphries’ D was not good.
Wizards down 53-52 at the half. Bosh leads all w/19p. Gooden leads Wizards w/13. Pierce has 11. Gortat has 10. Wall = 8p, 9a.
HALF: Heat 53, Wizards 52. Bosh hurting Gortat from the outside and everyone else in the post. He has 19p on 6/9, 5r.
Wiz may need to think about staggering Nene and Gortat when the former returns from suspension. No rim protection otherwise.
End Q1: Wizards 28, Heat 22. Deng: 6p, 2r. Bosh: 3p, 3r. Cole: 8p, 1a. Gortat leads WAS with 8p
There’s so little spacing without Beal (and Nene). But defense looks pretty good aside from a couple odd Pierce and Gortat mistakes.
Marcin Gortat got that Birdman look going this season, minus 90 percent of the tattoos http://t.co/f864KshfUo
Marcin Gortat & Chris Andersen will be re-enacting a Sons of Anarchy episode tonight
Washington had 4 guys suspended for opener, but only 2 (Nene, Blair) made team. Also w/o Beal/Webster. Gortat, Gooden, Pierce, Temple, Wall.
Didn't realize Gortat had gone full Birdman with the hair. http://t.co/WGVnATovT5
Gortat’s rhythm is off. He has to duck in when Wall is driving to the rim in transition like that.
Wall, Temple, Porter, Nene, and Gortat are the listed probable starters tonight in Baltimore. Pierce didn’t practice yesterday w/knee bruise
John Wall, Brad Beal, Marcin Gortat and Nene have all missed at least 20 games in one of the last two seasons. Injuries big question in WAS
Wizards win 91-89. 5 players in double figures. Gortat double-double. Miller 11 assists.
Please tell me Marcin Gortat is fronting a Dischord tribute band.
Silas ran hard off the ball, was rewarded with a pass from Gortat, and found Blair underneath for an easy basket.
Andre Drummond has blocked the shots of Nene, Gortat and Blair tonight. He's pretty good
Gortat missed an easy bunny, then didn’t at all realize Drummond running behind him. Ugly.
Nene and Gortat will start for the Wiz, and Monroe and Drummond will start for the DET. No Josh Smith. Caron Butler will start for DET too.
