The Washington Wizards were trying to pick up their first win over the Orlando Magic this season, after losing both previous games on the road. After trailing at halftime, the Wizards opened up the second half with a run to take the lead. Unfortunately for the Wiz however, Magic forward Ryan Anderson found his groove as the Magic retook the lead and held on to win 102-95, beating Washington for the third straight time this season and extending the Wizards losing streak to seven games.
John Wall ended the night with 33 points to lead the Wizards, also picking up 4 assists with just one turnover. With the shake up in the line-up, JaVale McGee and Nick Young played just 14 and 17 minutes respectively, combining for just 14 points. Jordan Crawford added 18 points in the loss while Trevor Booker picked up 13 rebounds and 7 points on the night.
