Marcin Gortat take a hand to the face, throws down filthy dunk (GIF)

The Washington Wizards are trying to land themselves a decent playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, and part of why they’ve been able to play so well is how their roster as managed to fit together unlike in years past.  The addition of Bradley Beal in the draft a few years ago and the evolution of John Wall’s game has led to a lot of improvement across the roster but Marcin Gortat deserves a lot of credit for the year he’s had.

We saw some of why the Wizards love him so much on Wednesday night when the Celtics tried to stop one of his dunks and were blitzed by aggressiveness.


Gortat may not be an MVP but he’s helped keep the Wizards interesting this year and proves that the talent on the roster was just one or two players away from being special.
