The Orlando Magic return from the All-Star break tonight in Washington to take on the lowly Wizards. The game starts at 7 pm and can be seen on Sun Sports.

The Magic and the Wizards have met twice already this season and they have come out victorious on both occasions. The first meeting was very early in the season on Jan. 4th and the Magic had a pretty easy time with the young Wizards. Dwight Howard had 28 points and 20 rebounds against an inferior Wizards front line, and it wouldn't be out of the question to expect a similar performance from him tonight.

The second time they met the game was a little bit closer, but the result was ultimately the same. Howard only finished with 18 rebounds this time, but the Magic still got a 109-103 victory.
