Marcin Gortat and Drew Gooden Still Working, Will Not Rest Until It's Over

It’s not over ‘til it’s over, Washington. 

While the Indiana Pacers appear content to nap through Round 2 of the NBA playoffs, Marcin Gortat and Drew Gooden are putting in work.

The two Washington Wizards hit the gym on Wednesday after smacking the doors off Indiana on the Pacers’ home court in what should have been a wrap-up game for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Gooden tweeted a picture of he and Gortat in the gym, lifting heavy, big boy weights. The message is clear: The Wizards will not go gently into that good night.

And that, sports fans, is the difference between the Pacers and the Wizards at the moment. The title contenders slumber while the No. 5 seed sweats for it.

Granted, the Pacers will probably find a way to close out this series and make it to the conference finals, but they’re missing the Gortat-Gooden fury. Entirely lacking from this postseason is the smash-you-in-the-mouth anger that helped them take Miami to a Game 7 in 2013. Being a favorite, as opposed to an upstart, seems to have taken the lead out of their proverbial pencils.

Get your business together, Indiana. Or don’t.

If you’re unwilling to finish the set, feel free to hop off the bench. Gortat and Gooden would love to take it from here.
