The Orlando Magic visit the Washington Wizards on Monday night to end a four-game roadtrip. Tipoff is set for 7 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida in the Orlando market. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 5:30 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.
Orlando's last time out: The Magic improbably snapped their 10-game losing streak by beating the Los Angeles Clippers, who were tied with the Oklahoma City Thunder for the NBA's best record, in their own building in come-from-behind fashion. Magic guard J.J. Redick made two key plays in the final minute, while swingman Arron Afflalo tied a season-high by scoring 30 points. All-Star forward Blake Griffin also scored 30, but did not attempt a single shot in the fourth quarter.
Washington's last time out: The Wizards welcomed back John Wall, the athletic point guard on whose health the franchise's future hinges, in a 93-83 win against the Atlanta Hawks. Making his season début, Wall played 21 minutes off the bench and contributed 14 points, two rebounds, and four assists.
The last meeting: Washington erased a Magic lead which reached 17 points and ultimately cruised to a 105-97 win against Orlando on December 28th. Jordan Crawford scored 27 points off the bench, while Nenê had 23 points and 11 boards.
