“We don’t have anything to lose now,” Gortat said. “We play desperate. At the end of the day, we might lose. We have to play every minute of every game like it’s the last one of the season.”
Marcin Gortat put up bigger numbers in GM5’s blowout win over the Pacers than he did in his previous 2 games combined (6pts & 13rebs). The Polish Hammer dropped 31 points and 16 rebounds on Roy Hibbert (4pts & 3rebs in 25mins) and helped the Wizards force a Game 6.
“I was a decoy in Game 3 and Game 4,” the 30-year-old Polish native said. “(Tuesday) was the time for me to perform. At some point in the second half, it was just fun to be in the game.”
