PHOENIX -- Suns center Marcin Gortat always has preferred his original national-team nickname, “Polish Machine,” over the catchier “Polish Hammer” moniker that stuck publicly. It might be more of who he is — more methodical than overpowering. When his tap finish came up short to tie the score at Toronto or when he puts up any shot near the rim with touch rather than force, it can draw the ire of many for him to finish stronger. He opened Friday’s game with a dunk but then missed his other four first-quarter shots.
