Magic at Wizards: Orlando looking for first win since losing Glen Davis

Martell Webster - USA TODAY Sports

Orlando has lost three straight games without Davis, who injured himself in the Magic's last game against Washington, in the lineup.

The Orlando Magic aim to stop their losing streak at three games on Friday when they visit the Washington Wizards, who own the league's worst record. Tipoff is set for 7 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida in the Orlando market. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 5 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic fell to 0-3 without Glen Davis available on Wednesday against the visiting New Orleans Hornets, which entered the game as the West's worst team and on an 11-game losing streak. The contest was close, with 14 ties and 14 lead changes, but the Magic's inability to execute in the fourth quarter aided their demise. Robin Lopez had 29 points--one off his career high--for the Hornets, while Greivis Vásquez set a new career-high with 27.

Washington's last time out: The Wizards' losing streak extended to eight games on Wednesday with their 87-84 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The score was tied as the fourth quarter began, but Washington had nearly as many turnovers (five) as baskets (six) in the final period, enabling Cleveland to come up with the road victory.

The last meeting: Orlando held on to beat Washington, 90-83, behind 32 points from the reserve backcourt of E'Twaun Moore and J.J. Redick. The victory came at a cost, as Davis sprained his left shoulder with less than one minute remaining as Emeka Okafor fouled him. In defeat, Wizards center Nenê scored 20 points in 25 minutes off the bench.
