The Washington Wizards fought hard, but ultimately fell to the Orlando Magic, 109-103, in Orlando. The Magic moved to 13-9 on the year, while the Wizards fall to 4-17. Ryan Anderson and Dwight Howard scored 23 points to lead the Magic in the win, while J.J. Redick added 21.
The big story, however, was the poor play of Wizards star John Wall. Wall scored just two points in the game, hitting his only field goal late in the contest. He went 1-12 overall, and his out-of-control drive late effectively sealed the game for Orlando. Wall has struggled against the Magic throughout his career, but never like this.
The Wizards' bench ultimately kept them in the game, as it outscored the Magic's bench, 50-19.
