Marcin Gortat had a perfect shooting performance against the Timberwolves

Marcin Gortat had a perfect shooting performance against the Timberwolves

The Polish Machine isn’t getting rusty folks. Marcin Gortat slumped this season as a scorer. His Per-36 minute scoring average dropped from 16.1 points per 36 minutes played to 11.7 this season. And some some were wondering if he was truly declining. On Friday, Kevin Broom noted that Gortat isn’t declining due to age but because he’s less involved in the offense. In other words, Gortat may not really be declining at all. In addition to the stats Kevin laid out, here are some other stats that support Gortat’s consistency from last season to this season and his lack of touches: If...

Clyde’s House of Highlights: Wizards Whup Wolves

Wall to Gortat, Wall to Gortat, Wall to Gortat... In the recap, Dave did a good job of summing things up, so let’s watch how the Wizards whupped the pups: Over and over again, John Wall commanded the D and then found the Wizards’ Big G! Wall’s dribble attack helps Gortat dunk like Shaq! Now watch Marcin bully belly with the savage seal: The way Wall is feeding Gortat, the Wizards better hope Marcin doesn’t get fat! Wall and Gorat picked the Wolves apart all night, but at least Wiggins put up a fight! Andrew took it to the hole strong, all night long: The wild and woolly...

Wizards vs Timberwolves final score: Washington overcomes a poor third quarter to win 112-105

Wizards vs Timberwolves final score: Washington overcomes a poor third quarter to win 112-105

For once, we can’t blame it on the bench: The Wizards survived a third quarter meltdown by their stating lineup to beat the visiting Timberwolves 112-105. While Washington’s defensive struggles continue to be alarming, there were some positive takeaways from Friday’s win. A big night for the backcourt John Wall picked apart the Timberwolves with ease, tallying a season high 18 assists with just three turnovers. There are a lot of cracks in the young Timberwolves’ defense, and Wall found every one of them, leading to wide open dunks for Marcin Gortat and three after three after three...

Marcin Gortat's decline this season has more to do with his touches than his age

Marcin Gortat's decline this season has more to do with his touches than his age

Why is Marcin Gortat’s production down this season? Because that’s what the team wants from him. According to my overall player rating metric, Player Production Average (PPA), Gortat’s production has fallen from a well-above average 171 last season to a 128 so far this year. (In PPA, league average is 100, and higher is better.) This is his lowest mark since joining the Wizards, and only slightly better since his final year in Phoenix. PER tells a similar story -- in that metric, Gortat rated a 19.0 last season; this year a league average 15.0. There are few indicators that his...

Wizards vs. Timberwolves preview: Washington tries to get back in win column vs. Minnesota

Wizards vs. Timberwolves preview: Washington tries to get back in win column vs. Minnesota

After a mini two-game skid through the state of Texas, the Wizards return to the friendly confines of Verizon Center for the first time in 2017 to take on Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night. That’s good news for the Wizards as they have a much better record on their home floor versus on the road. The combination of Marcin Gortat and Markieff Morris will have their hands full with the prodigy that is Karl-Anthony Towns. Towns can explode for a 30-15 game on any given night so it’ll be key that the duo keeps him in check before he can get going. Washington will need to take care of...

Keys to the Palace: Wall, Porter, and Gortat lead the Wizards to a fantastic end to 2016!

Keys to the Palace: Wall, Porter, and Gortat lead the Wizards to a fantastic end to 2016!

When the Wizards win three straight games, you know we’re going to hand keys to multiple players, right? The Wizards won all three of their games last week as they finished out 2016 with a three game home winning streak. When you win all three games in a row, it’s a lot easier to give keys than last week when no one received a key. Let’s hand out some individual hardware to the players: Keys to the Palace John Wall, 24.3 ppg, 13 apg, 5.3 rpg The only downside to Wall’s performance was that he average six turnovers last week. That said his usage rating was over 30 percent, so that...
