    Poland’s Lampe On The Way Back
    By Jeff Taylor

    One of the upsets to take place at last year's EuroBasket was turned in by a Poland national side that was missing a couple of vital frontline players.

    Phoenix Suns center Marcin Gortat, due to insurance issues brought about by the NBA Lockout, wasn't able to represent the Poles in Lithuania and neither was his fellow big man, Maciej Lampe, because of injury.

    Lampe tore his labrum and had hip surgery and is only just getting back into top shape in Spain's Liga Endesa with Caja Laboral Baskonia.

    Despite their absences at the EuroBasket, coach Ales Pipan led the team to an upset of Turkey in group play, an 84-83 victory on 4 September in Panevezys.

    Dardan Berisha (21 points) capped a terrific individual and team performance by hitting a game-winning jump shot just 12 seconds from the end.

    The Poles held on for the triumph as Kerem Tunceri missed an attempt from long range at the buzzer.

    Just one more victory was needed the following day against Great Britain for Poland.

    Had they won against Luol Deng and Co, the Poles would progress in the competition against all expectations.

    The talented Brits played the role of spoiler, though, and won the encounter, 88-81.

    The aim is now to make it back to the EuroBasket and this summer, Poland should have a stronger team on the floor as they go up against Finland, Switzerland, Albania and Belgium in the Qualification Round.

    LAMPE'S RETURN

    Lampe has recovered and is playing basketball again.

    He has appeared in five league games with Baskonia.

    "I'm just trying to get back into the swing of things," Lampe said to Basketball World News.

    "I was out for a long time but I'm feeling pretty good about being healthy and coming back."

    Lampe is not easing his way back into action, but competing for a demanding Baskonia coach, Dusko Ivanovic.

    The 2.10m Lampe has discovered that under Ivanovic, mental mistakes or poor execution will lead to his immediate removal from games, and harsh words from the coach.

    "Yes, he's on me," Lampe said.

    "It's going to take some time for him to build his confidence in me but I understand that.

    "I've just got to keep working hard, doing my job, keep my mouth shut and do what he says."

    Poland basketball fans, and coach Pipan, will be relieved that Lampe is on the court.

    There is nothing more disruptive for a national team than to lose key players.

    "I'll be with them this summer," he said.

    "I'm excited, and I'm going to be there for sure."

    Poland Can Count On Gortat This Summer

    Marcin Gortat will play for Poland again this summer and do his best to make sure the national team returns to the EuroBasket Final Round in 2013.

    The NBA Lockout prevented the Phoenix Suns center from representing his country at EuroBasket 2011 in Lithuania, where they beat Portugal and Turkey but did not progress to the second stage of the competition.

    He'll be in the squad this year, though, when Poland face Finland, Switzerland, Albania and Belgium in Qualification Round Group E.

    "I am coming to this summer very positive and I can assure you that I want to come to the national team and represent our country," Gortat said to mg13.com.pl.

    Saying he looks at the qualifying campaign as a chance to make amends for Poland's defeat to Belgium in their vital game for first place in the group in 2010, Gortat said: "For my part, I want to join the team as soon as possible..."

    "Now I am already in Poland. I came to the country to take part in family events at which I wanted to appear.

    "I'm glad that I can use this time to meet with family. Now we can stay a little time.

    "But I'll be here a few days, after which I'll return to Orlando to begin preparations for next season."

    LOOKING TO IMPROVE

    The national team will come after Gortat puts in a lot of hours on the court, and in the weight room, back in the USA.

    The 'Polish Machine' teamed up often with Phoenix's point guard Steve Nash on the pick-and-roll this year when he grew into a terrific starting center after serving as Dwight Howard's back-up in Orlando.

    But Gortat wants to get better.

    "I've got to become a better post-up player, I've got to create more fouls, and I'm 100% sure I'm going to have to finish everything around the basket a little bit harder," he told the Arizona Republic newspaper.

    "I've got to forget about being a finesse player, I've got to forget that I was able to work out with Hakeem Olajuwon (last summer) and all the Dream Shakes and left and right hooks.

    "Sometimes I've got to be a simple basketball player and dunk the ball."

    His aims, he says, are "just get better and bigger. That's it, that's the main thing."

    Unable to represent the country in 2012 after a hard season with BC Khimki in Russia, Kelati says a return this year is possible.

    "Last year, I decided to skip out because I had a tough year at Khimki and decided to rest my knee,” he said to FIBA.com.

    "We'll see. It's something that's in the back of my mind.

    “I felt bad that I wasn't there for them last summer but I was there watching them as they qualified (for the EuroBasket).

    "I'd like to play in the EuroBasket again.

    "It's always about how I feel at the end of the year because these European years, they wear you out, especially with my body, my knee.”
