The Magic used a stifling defensive effort in the third quarter to distance themselves from Washington before holding on to win it. The Wizards scored just 13 points in the third period and fell behind, 76-63, going into the final 12 minutes.
Washington fought back, however, and cut the deficit to just four at 85-81 with four minutes to play. But the Wizards scored their last points of the game with nearly three minutes left and were unable to cut into the Magic's lead any further.
Nene led the Wizards with 20 points, while Jordan Crawford had 19. Emeka Okafor had eight points and 12 rebounds.
E'Twaun Moore and Arron Afflalo each had 15 points for Orlando to accompany Redick's performance. As a team, Orlando outrebounded Washington, 48-38.
