Magic lose Big Baby, topple Wizards 90-83

USA TODAY Sports

A strong effort from the bench helped the Magic snag a 90-83 win over the struggling Wizards.

The Orlando Magic downed the Washington Wizards, 90-83, but might have lost power forward Glen Davis in the process.

The 26-year-old Davis was fouled by Wizards forward/center Emeka Okafor with 47.8 seconds left the Magic's win, and hit the floor clutching his left shoulder. Davis was unable to shoot his free throws, was attended to by Magic trainer Keon Weise and led to the locker room clutching the injured shoulder. He did not return.

Orlando led 48-35 with 4:34 left in the second quarter, but struggled from the floor to close out the half and finished with a two-point cushion heading into intermission. A strong effort from the bench helped the Magic push the lead to 76-63 before hanging on down the stretch for a win.

J.J. Redick led the Magic with 17 points off the bench, and E'Twaun Moore added 15 points in a reserve role to propel Orlando to a victory. Starting shooting guard Aaron Afflalo chipped in with 15 points, while Davis added 12 points and nine rebounds before exiting with the shoulder injury.

Nene led all scorers with 20 points, and Wizards shooting guard Jordan Crawford scored 19 points, six assists and four assists in the losing effort.
