Gortat pulled down 17 rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +16 in his 34:26 on the floor. He added three blocks. Analysis: Gortat got off to a fantastic start with a big-time double-double. He wasn't as productive toward the end of last season so these numbers are very encouraging. Gortat only had as many as 17 boards once last season, so hopefully the opener is a sign of things to come.
