It’s been a busy off-season for Marcin Gortat, as he’s been hard at work trying to position the Polish national team towards qualification for EuroBasket 2011. After a horrid first game against Georgia on August 2, in which Gortat was “destroyed” by Zaza Pachulia in their head-to-head matchup, the “Polish Machine” has redeemed himself with some excellent performances since then.
One of those games came in a rematch against Georgia on August 17, in which Gortat led Poland to a win with 17 points, eight rebounds, and four blocks in his hometown of Lodz. Let the game be known as Gortat’s revenge, as Pachulia struggled mightily in their matchup against each other — eight points on 10 shots for the Georgian native.
