The Washington Wizards are looking for their second win in as many nights, and after last night's blowout of the lowly Bobcats, they're all even with the Orlando Magic at the half. Orlando is playing without All-Star center Dwight Howard, who's been battling back problems for the past two weeks and sat out last night for the Magic. But Orlando cruised to a win against the Pistons without him, and they're tied 41-41 tonight at Verizon Center.
Without Howard patrolling the paint, Kevin Seraphin continued his breakout second half of the season. He's significantly increased his production over the past month, and tonight he had a game-high 14 points and five boards in the first 24 minutes. John Wall is a perfect five for five from the charity stripe and is also already in double figures, adding 11 points. The Magic shot just 33 percent from the field in the first half and rely heavily on the three-pointer. If Washington can continue to challenge at the arc, Randy Wittman's club could start off the week two for two.
