With their longest roadtrip of the season squarely in the rearview mirror, the Orlando Magic return home Wednesday to host the Washington Wizards at Amway Center.

Tipoff between the Southeast Division rivals 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 picked up their second straight win Saturday by topping the Sacramento Kings, 105-96, thanks to another sterling performance from Tobias Harris. The fourth-year forward shot 10-of-17 from the floor, including 4-of-5 on three-pointers, for 27 points. The win gave Orlando a 3-3 record on its six-game road swing.

Washington's last time out: The Wizards eked past the Boston Celtics, 133-132, in double-overtime Monday night for their fifth win in their last six games. Playing with a heavy heart, All-Star point guard John Wall scored 26 points, grabbed seven rebounds, and dished 17 assists for the home team, and his three-point play with 45 seconds left in the second overtime gave Washington the win. Paul Pierce torched his former club with 28 points and four triples.

The last meeting: Washington has beaten Orlando twice already in the 2014/15 campaign, most recently on November 15th in DC. Kris Humphries came off the Wizards' bench to score 16 with six boards, playing a key role in helping the Wiz stave off a late Orlando rally. All five Magic starters reached double-figure scoring, but the bench managed 13 points on 6-of-17 shooting.
