Three keys for Bulls vs. Wizards

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Taj Gibson and his Chicago Bulls teammates didn't try to sugarcoat how difficult a matchup they believe they have in front of them against the Washington Wizards in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals that start Sunday night at the United Center. "Tough team, man," Gibson said after Wednesday night's loss to the Charlotte Bobcats. "Tough, tough team. They gave us so many problems in the regular season. Great shooters. They've got some great bigs in Nene and [Marcin] Gortat.

Bulls vs. Wizards playoff schedule: First-round series tips off Sunday

Let's get it on. Game 1 is Sunday evening. So the "dream" scenario came true. The Bulls get the Wizards in the first round instead of the Nets, with a possible date against the vulnerable Pacers in the second round. I like. yfBB already gave a brief intro to the series, and I agree that John Wall has the potential to give the Bulls some real problems. Bradley Beal, Trevor Ariza and Martell Webster are very capable shooters that can make it rain from outside, and the Wizards have a solid frontcourt with a healthy Nene to go along with Marcin Gortat. Oh, and old friend Drew Gooden has also...

Wizards vs. Celtics final score: Washington leaps to the fifth seed with 118-102 win

Wizards vs. Celtics final score: Washington leaps to the fifth seed with 118-102 win

Wizards managed to weather an early second half storm by the Celtics, defeating them handily, 118-102. And with Brooklyn's loss, Washington leaped to the fifth seed and will face the Chicago Bulls in round 1. That was easy, right? After a brief scare from Boston early in the second half, Washington retook control of the game and handled their business. This was a Boston team without Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger, playing Joel Anthony extended minutes with Kelly Olynyk in foul trouble, and it showed. The Wizards' frontline of Trevor Booker, Nene, and Marcin Gortat threw their weight...

Game On: Wizards fall short of Gortat's prediction

Marcin Gortat got overly excited when the Wizards first got to .500 and thought they could win 50 games, and while he was ridiculed by some he wasn't that far off.

Magical Pixels, Wizards vs. Bobcats: Washington forgets to care about biggest game of the season

John Wall deemed his team's Battle For The Sixth Seed against the Bobcats the most important game of the season, but the Wizards certainly didn't treat it that way. Damnit, Wizards. Damnit. What's more #SoWizards than dubbing a game likely to determine your playoff seeding "the biggest" of the season and then coming out with all the energy of a grizzly bear in January? Stay tuned, because we'll probably find out once the playoffs start. Bank on it. Criminy. John Wall recorded this third career triple-double (14 points, 11 assists, 12 rebounds), Marcin Gortat scored 27 points to go with 14...

Poland’s Marcin Gortat coming up big for Washington Wizards

A few weeks after he was taken 57th overall in the 2005 NBA, Marcin Gortat came over from Europe to play for the Orlando Magic summer league team and was so skinny, lost and quiet that, to this day, Randy Wittman doesn’t even recall having him around. Read full article >>

Magical Pixels, Wizards vs. Bulls: Do we really have to relive this one?

The Wizards got blown out by the Bulls, 96-78. We'll just leave it at that. Oh, and now they're only one game ahead of the Bobcats for the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference. Ugh. Against the Bulls, the Wizards basically got nothing from anyone not named John Wall (20 points, six assists), Bradley Beal (14 points, five assists) or Marcin Gortat (19 points, eight rebounds). The rest of the team combined to score 25 points on 11-for-42 shooting. Let's all just try and forget this one as quickly as possible. Enjoy your sad pixels.

Q&A: Marcin Gortat discusses his developing pick and roll chemistry with John Wall

We sit down with Marcin Gortat to talk about how he's helped John Wall improve as a pick and roll player. NEW YORK -- With the Wizards facing the Knicks Friday, I decided to head over to the team's shootaround at Madison Square Garden and nerd out with Marcin Gortat about how he runs the pick and roll so proficiently. It was a short conversation, but an interesting one. Here's a transcript. I remember something you said after the second game of the season. You said you were getting used to John Wall's different style, how he was more of a scorer. What did you guys learn about each other to...

Marcin Gortat tries to get intel in Celtics huddle

The Wizards' center tells us why he pulled this stunt. By now, I'm sure you've seen the above photo of Marcin Gortat sneaking into the Boston Celtics' huddle during a third-quarter free throw. It's a nod to Rajon Rondo's attempt to do the same to the Miami Heat during the 2011 playoffs. If you look closely, you'll see Rondo's arm is around Gortat's waist, showing he was also in on the joke. Our own Amin Vafa did some important journalism and asked Gortat what he was doing in there. "For a second, I felt like a Celtic"-Marcin Gortat "Rajon Rondo was kind enough to let me in. For a...
