Before the series, Raptors Coach Dwane Casey highlighted Gortat’s screens — likely as a way to subtly put officials on alert for offensive fouls. As the team returned to Toronto locked in a 2-2 tie with the Wizards, Casey once again called for closer scrutiny of those plays. “We gotta look at some of the hits and fouls, we’re getting hit at the rim, and understand that we’ve gotta play through those hits. We’re getting cracked, we’re getting hit at the rim, but we’ve gotta go ahead and finish those no matter what happens,” Casey told reporters Monday, then singling out Gortat.
Wall, who has 14 or more assists in three games in this series, also held DeRozan to two points and 1-for-5 shooting in the final six minutes. “That’s John Wall,” center Marcin Gortat said. “I am glad he’s healthy. He is spoon-feeding me. I am getting fat now. Listen, if he plays the right way, he is the best point guard in the league. If he looks for his teammates and looks for the open possession where he can attack, he is the best.”

Marcin Gortat said Markieff Morris brought clippers to each practice and pestered him to shave the Mohawk. Realizing the amount of effort that went into Mohawk maintainence, Gortat finally gave in. The results: 16 points (8-10) and 5 rebounds.
