Marcin Gortat is affectionately known as the 'Polish Hammer' around the league and showed everyone why in game two of the Wizards-Pacers series when he put Ian Mahinmi on a poster.

The Washington Wizards made a very smart move in October of 2013 when they traded for undervalued center Marcin Gortat, since then the Pole has performed admirably in a Wizards uniform and his great form has stretched into the post season.

Gortat and the Wizards comfortably defeated the favoured Chicago Bulls in the opening round of the playoffs with a 4-1 series win, meaning they set up a match with the number one seed Indiana Pacers in the second round.

Gortat would then face opponents like Roy Hibbert, David West and Ian Mahinmi, he took this challenge on in stride and showed everyone how he would deal with it by creating highlights like this incredible posterization.

Gortat sets the screen before rolling to the basket and taking the feed off point guard John Wall, he leaps towards the rim with reckless abandon and Mahinmi attempts to block his shot.

Not to be outdone, Gortat cocks back the two handed slam and jams it on Mahinmi's head for the incredible poster.
