Wizards Vs. Magic Final Score: Washington Never Competitive In 103-85 Loss

The Washington Wizards never stood a chance against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night. Orlando jumped ahead to a 13-2 lead, quickly moved the lead to double digits and never were threatened in a 103-85 victory that was not as close as the final score indicated.

The Wizards missed their first 12 shots of the game and eventually fell behind, 31-14, after the first quarter. From there, the closest they got was 16 points.

Dwight Howard dominated for the Magic, scoring 28 points and grabbing 20 rebounds. Orlando outrebounded the Wizards by 10, with Howard and Ryan Anderson outrebounding Andray Blatche and JaVale McGee, 35-10. Nick Young had 17 points to lead the Wizards, while John Wall added 14. Anderson had 23 points for Orlando.

Jan Vesely Injury Update: Wizards Rookie May Make His Debut Against Magic

The Washington Wizards are getting ready to take on the Orlando Magic in Orlando, and they could see the sixth pick of the NBA draft, forward Jan Vesely make his NBA and Wizards debut in some capacity, according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

While Vesely will dress for the game, it looks like his role will be to play "Hack-a-Dwight" to put Orlando's star player on the free throw line, rather than let him rack up points in the paint and catch ally-oops from point guard Jamar Nelson. Vesely had been dealing with some discomfort in his hip that has caused him to miss the beginning of the season.
