The Orlando Magic will try to win their fourth consecutive game when they host the Washington Wizards Wednesday night. In Orlando's most recent victory, they rallied from a 15-point deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves Monday night, improving their record to 11-13. Despite Jordan Crawford's triple double (27 points, 11 rebounds & 11 assists) Tuesday night, the Wizards were defeated by the Atlanta Hawks in overtime, dropping their record to 3-19.
The Wizards, of course, have been without former first overall pick John Wall all season. Wall, who played in every game last season, averaging 16.3 points, 8.0 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game, is out with a knee injury. Former Florida Gator Bradley Beal is averaging 12.5 points per game in his rookie reason while former Florida State standout Chris Singleton is putting up 5.0 points and 4.0 rebounds per game.
