Marcin Gortat completely dominated the paint on Thursday, finishing a quick and tidy win with 12 points, 16 rebounds and a block in 31 minutes.
Gortat shot 6-of-12 from the field and seems to relish crushing the smaller Celtics down low. After the game he laughed off the theoretical physical challenge presented by Boston, saying, “going against Dwight Howard and now going against their bigs, it’s not even close.” He’s not wrong. This was the perfect series for Gortat to get his mojo back after a really poor second half to the regular season and he appears to be rolling again.
