What It Means: He made 11-of-19 from the field and all six from the line for a terrific scoring line. Okafor was coming off a rough game on Friday against the Wizards, but he's struggled against Marcin Gortat for basically his whole career. With Joel Embiid (knee) possibly missing more than two games, Okafor may start to get it going. Among the 42 centers averaging 20 minutes per game or more, Okafor's 4.9...

Wizards vs. Pacers final score: Morris and Gortat’s big nights lift Wiz to 112-107 win

Markieff Morris scored a season-high 26 points, and Marcin Gortat added 14 points and 16 rebounds as Washington overcame a sluggish night from their three best players and their bench to defeat the Pacers 112-107. After missing Wednesday’s game with a calf injury, Morris made up for lost time with his best all-around performance of the season. He snagged 10 boards, made three of six shots from deep and did a great job carrying the team on both ends after the other four starters logged heavy minutes in Washington’s overtime win in Brooklyn on Wednesday. Marcin Gortat also came through...

Recapping the Wizards’ 2017 Polish Heritage Night

Check out some highlights from Polish Heritage Night at Verizon and more. The Wizards held Polish Heritage Night on Saturday when they played the Pelicans. The best thing about the night was the Wizards’ 105-91 win of course. But last night was a bit more than just the 17th straight home team for the men in Monumental Red.

Saturday is Polish Heritage night. Here are some factoids to get you ready

Marcin Gortat loves his heritage. Here are some other things about Poland (besides vodka and pierogies) that you may not know about. So, tonight is Polish Heritage Night at Verizon Center when the Wizards host the Pelicans. Like all of you, I want to see the Wizards defeat the Pelicans so all fans see Washington get their 17th straight home victory. But also, a win will also make things just a little sweeter for the Polish fans in attendance. After the game, Wizards center (and Polish Machine) Marcin Gortat will greet fans for a Q&A with at least a couple celebrities in attendance. Who are...
