DC Sports Bog: Wizards’ Marcin Gortat discusses his frustrations

After the Wizards’ loss to the Warriors on Tuesday night — in which he didn’t play a single fourth-quarter minute — Marcin Gortat was uncharacteristically tight-lipped in the team’s locker room. Via Jorge Castillo:Read full article >>

Marcin Gortat sits during fourth quarter against the Warriors

A seething Marcin Gortat, usually gregarious and effusive, was blunt Tuesday night as the Washington Wizards gathered their belongings for a late-night flight to Minneapolis. The Wizards had lost their fourth straight game, but his frustration went beyond the team result. Gortat spent three quarters tormenting the undersized Golden State Warriors front line. Coming off […]

DC Sports Bog: Marcin Gortat is a Twitter-blocking machine

Marcin Gortat is developing quite a history with Chicago Bulls fans on social media. During last year’s playoffs, he said a Bulls fan “made some terrorist threats” against the Wizards. And last month, after a win over Chicago, he asked “Why after every game vs The Bulls do we have so many messages from crying people! I probably blocked 100 Dudes again!???? Why????”Read full article >>

Numbers show Marcin Gortat is better than he looks this season

Over the All Star break we're ranking the trade values of all 14 Wizards from bottom to top. This post takes a look at #4 on the list, Marcin Gortat. Last week, the great debate over the value of analytics was rekindled by Daryl Morey and Charles Barkley's back-and-forth on the subject. Odds are, the latest round of discussion did little to actually change your stance on the subject. If you valued the eye test more than anything else going in, you probably came out of last week's discussion still tooting that horn. If you came into last week's discussion on the analytics end of the...

Gortat sat out entire fourth quarter against Raptors because...?

Marcin Gortat doesn't get many minutes in the fourth quarter, but Wednesday's scenario is a bit odder than normal.

Marcin Gortat continues to see fourth-quarter minutes diminish

TORONTO — To Marcin Gortat, the “crucial thing” that ultimately cost the Washington Wizards in Wednesday night’s 95-93 loss to the Toronto Raptors was late-game execution. He, however, was not on the floor late in the game. Or in the fourth quarter at all. Instead, Coach Randy Wittman elected to play Drew Gooden III over […]

Marcin Gortat goes for 14 and 14 in win - Marcin Gortat (C) Washington Wizards

Marcin Gortat finally had a big game against the Magic on Monday during a 96-80 win, scoring 14 points with 14 rebounds, three assists and one block.

Wizards 96, Magic 80: Washington pulls away in second half

Once Washington found the range from beyond the arc, it was lights-out for the visiting Magic. The Orlando Magic dropped their second game in as many nights Monday, falling to the Washington Wizards in a 96-80 rout which was never competitive after halftime. Washington's frontline of Marcin Gortat and Nenê had its way with Orlando, combining for 28 points and 17 rebounds on 11-of-16 shooting from the floor. All-Star point guard John Wall came close to recording a triple-double and likely would have were the game more competitive: he finished with nine points, 10 boards, and 10...

Wizards' bigs must run as fast as they can

Today's Wake-Up Call takes a look at the need for Washington's big men to run the floor, who the Wizards' top targets are to fill their final roster spot, and how the Wizards' early season schedule made them look better than they really were. 1. Run, Marcin, run!* For the Wizards to be dangerous and keep defenses off-balance, they need to be dynamic. That means being multi-dimensional, including having their bigs running the floor to be able to play inside out. Marcin Gortat, specifically, needs to get himself down court and in the pick-and-roll game early to get himself going. *Name that...

Wake-Up Call: Should the Wizards have kept Trevor Ariza?

Today's Wake-Up Call takes a look back at how things would be now for the Wizards had they held on to Trevor Ariza, a closer look at the team's recent struggles, and tonight's matchup with the Brooklyn Nets. 1. What if? Last offseason the Wizards had to make a choice -- sign Marcin Gortat, a center who meshed well with their franchise point guard, or sign Trevor Ariza, a two-way player who excelled next to said point guard. Signing both would have hindered them financially for the future, so they went hard after Gortat and quickly snatched Paul Pierce to replace Ariza after he left for...
