Marcin Gortat scored 16 points and grabbed a ridiculous 17 rebounds along with one assist and three blocks in the Wizards’ season opening win over the Sixers on Wednesday night.
Gortat was a monster on the glass and highly efficient on the floor, going 7-of-12. I suppose a perk of playing with John Wall is open looks around the rim. Expecting 17 is a stretch but Gortat will be a factor in the rebounding and blocked shots departments this season.
