Magic at Wizards: Orlando seeks rare D.C. win

John Wall - Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The Magic have lost their last four games in the Nation's Capital.

The Orlando Magic visit the Washington Wizards on Tuesday to open a back-to-back road set. Orlando has lost four straight in D.C. and 15 consecutive road games overall, making Tuesday's matchup an exceptionally tough challenge.

Tipoff between Orlando and Washington is set for 7:00 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM in Orlando. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 5:00 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic stayed competitive in the first half of their trip north of the border Sunday against the Toronto Raptors, but fell apart defensively after intermission, yielding 61 points on 65.5 percent shooting in a 105-90 defeat. In Arron Afflalo's absence, Tobias Harris scored a season-high-tying 28 points for the Magic.

Washington's last time out: All-Star point guard John Wall scored 21 points and dished nine assists as Washington coasted to a 96-83 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday. The Wizards won the game but suffered a key loss as Nenê, their starting power forward, sprained a ligament in his left knee, which injury will keep him out of action for an estimated six weeks.
