Tom Moore

Sam Perkins, Manute Bol ... RT @PhilaPhans @Tom Moore It might be fun to see some. Gortat, Laimbeer, there is history of 3pt shooting Cs.

Ryan Wolstat

Jonas Valanciunas finishes behind only DeAndre Jordan (71%!) in field goal percentage at 57.2%. 3rd place? Washington’s Gortat (56.6%)

Chris Fedor

Washington will be resting John Wall, Bradley Beal, Paul Pierce & Nene. Marcin Gortat will be the only starter.

Jorge Castillo

In a rarity, Randy Wittman announced his starting lineup pregame: Sessions, Porter, Butler, Humphries, Gortat.

Chris Miller

With Wall Beal and Gortat each logging at least 42 minutes last night in Indy should they rest against @Cleveland Cavaliers?

Jason Lieser

No one has. RT @Candace Buckner Lost in all of this, #Wizards leading scorer Marcin Gortat hasn't scored since the 4th Q

Candace Buckner

Lost in all of this, #Wizards leading scorer Marcin Gortat hasn't scored since the 4th Q

Tas Melas

Marcin Gortat must be confused by that end of quarter buzzer. He's not used to playing in the 4th.

Sean Highkin

Gortat definitely didn't get that off in time.

Andrew Perna

It would be pretty fitting if Indiana’s season essentially ended on that Gortat tip, but overtime.

Amin Elhassan

Lol Gortat tripping thinking he had time left on that tap

Tony Jones

lol @ Gortat actually thinking he got that off in time

Candace Buckner

Refs rule that Gortat's shot is no good, but review it quickly and confirm the call. Five more minutes.

Chris Miller

1-4 flat Wall ISO pass to Gortat off pick and roll for game winner? #WizardsTalk

Tom Lorenzo

Marcin Gortat: the pride of Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Steve Aschburner

One team Wizards feel confident against for 1st rd is Chicago. Nene/Gortat morph into Hayes/Unseld vs. Bulls, plus Beal > rusty Rose

Andrew Perna

Gortat is really good at attacking the rim.

Candace Buckner

#Wizards 0 for 5 from the 3 point line… but #Pacers 0 for 6 from point blank range by the rim, that's got to be largely due to Gortat

Candace Buckner

Soooo, I'm thinking the #Pacers should stop trying to score over Gortat at the rim. Just now working tonight

Mike Prada

That was a fantastic Gortat drag screen.

Candace Buckner

After Gortat scores easy hook in the paint, #Pacers call timeout. Indy's still looking for its first field goal, down 6-0 at 8:11 mark

Candace Buckner

#Wizards starters: John Wall, Bradley Beal, Paul Pierce, Drew Gooden, Marcin Gortat. Same starters for Indy

Jorge Castillo

Beal and Gortat have scored all of Washington's points since Nene made a basket with 2:25 left in the 2nd qtr..

Rashad Mobley

Nene and Gortat are being looked at by trainers and Wall is resting. Looks like the Nets will get a steady diet of Beal in the 4th quarter

Jorge Castillo

Wizards players not named Bradley Beal or Marcin Gortat = 7-for-35 from the field, 17 points.

Mike Mazzeo

The Polish Hammer Martin Gortat also has dropped in 12 points and eight rebounds -- in the third quarter alone.

Rod Boone

Gortat still taking junk to #Nets bench anytime he hits a shot.

Rod Boone

Marcin Gortat buries a jumper, looks back at #Nets bench and talks some trash. Think Lionel Hollins even may have said something back.

Alex Raskin

Nene was alone underneath the hoop. Passed it to Gortat. 24-second clock violation. #Wizards #Nets

Alex Raskin

Gortat was asking for a pass-interference call on Lopez there. #Nets up 7-5 after Johnson's corner 3. #Wizards

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards starters: Sessions, Beal, Pierce, Nene, Gortat.

Tim Bontemps

Kevin Seraphin asked Marcin Gortat to grab him a water. Gortat stopped, smiled and said, "What flavor?"

Christopher A. Vito

Brett Brown, on why Gortat was huge against the Sixers: "We were trying to blitz Beal, and we didn't rotate."

Tom Moore

Marcin Gortat from #Wizards shooting 8-for-9 vs. #Sixers, making him 31-for-39 (80 percent) vs. Philly in 4 games this season.

Chris Miller

Last 5 quarters vs Sixers Gortat (entering 2nd quarter tonight): 35 points, 16/17 FG, 17 rebounds

Chris Miller

Gortat is 6 for 6 already. Wiz up 27-12

Christopher A. Vito

Without Noel or Sims on the floor, the Sixers have absolutely no one formidable enough to defend Marcin Gortat (12 pts, 6-for-6).

Bob Cooney

Gortat is 6-for-6 from floor as Wizards up 27-12 on #Sixers. He's gotten at least three backdoor passes so for, all WIDE open.

Bob Cooney

How is it the #Sixers keep losing Gortat. The man is 7-feet, 280 pounds.

Bob Cooney

Gortat with 6 points, 3-3 from the floor. Brown pissed and sending in a whole new 5. Haven't seen him do that before. #Sixers.

Jorge Castillo

Wizards starters: Sessions, Beal, Pierce, Gooden, Gortat. 76ers: Smith, Covington, Grant, Noel, Aldemir.

Rashad Mobley

Gortat and Gooden may want to switch. Gooden can guard Jason Smith. Gortat cant guard Acy on the perimeter

Jorge Castillo

And not just PnR for Gortat. Gives him space for anything, like those seal outs. Not having another post player makes a difference.

Jorge Castillo

Wizards been saying it last couple days: Gooden's presence opens up PnR for Gortat constantly. Also helps it's been the 76ers and Knicks.

Jorge Castillo

Gortat's teammates are passing him the ball again and he has 8 pts in 8 minutes.

Rashad Mobley

Whatever lobbying Gortat did to get the ball more, Beal needs follow that blueprint to avoid a repeat of this: twitter.com/JohnCTownsend/…

Jorge Castillo

Gortat: 'They were passing me the ball'; Porter logs a career-high 38 minutes; #Wizards' title odds plummet: wpo.st/nJLB0
