The Orlando Magic conclude a back-to-back set in the nation's capital Saturday as they visit the Washington Wizards.

Tipoff between Orlando and Washington is set for 7:00 PM Eastern. Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM will offer live coverage in the Orlando market.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic withstood a 19-point first half from Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Knight, rallying in the second to earn a 101-85 win. Tobias Harris tallied 26 points and 10 boards against his former club, but the big story was Victor Oladipo's return to the lineup: making his season début, the former second overall NBA Draft choice scored 13 points in 25 minutes off the bench.

Washington's last time out: Washington narrowly picked up its second straight win Wednesday, taking a 107-103 decision against the visiting Detroit Pistons. Five Wizards scored in double-figures, with John Wall's 27 points leading the way. Rasual Butler scored 18 in 27 reserve minutes, shooting 7-of-8 from the floor.
