The Polish Hammer felt he was the reason the Magic fell in Detroit on Monday night. As Kyle Hightower of the Orlando Sentinel quoted, Marcin was determined to make up for it.
I spent the past two days waiting for another chance... I want to have a big night tonight. Like maybe 20 rebounds.
And Gortat came out to play, posting a career high 15 rebounds along with 13 points in a blowout against the rather horrible looking Bulls. Following the impressive game against Chicago he certainly felt better.
I would trade this game tonight with the Detroit Pistons. I think it would be a more satyisfying win against Detroit, but I'm happy that I came back and I could help the team win tonight.
...I think I just came into the game better. The guys hit me pretty well, [but] after you hit the first score, later everything is real easy.
Is there anyone who doesn't think that resigning the Polish Hammer this offseason shouldn't be a priority?
