A great performance by Marcin Gortat, who was the second scorer and the best rebounder on his team wasn’t enough to help Phoenix win another game. The Suns lost to Sacramento Kings 113:108. Marcin in 34 minutes of game time made 6 out of 9 two point shots. He also had an impressive percentage from the free throw line (8/8). To his 20 points he also added 12 rebounds, three blocks, one steal and one turnover.
The plebiscite took place in the White Factory. Marcin for the obvious reasons couldn’t participate in the ceremony so the award was received by his mother Alicja Gortat, who said “I am the happiest mother in Poland! I would like to thank everyone who voted for Marcin! This reward is obliging! My son has great plans with our city, and I know that he will make them come true!”
