The Wizards snapped their 2-game losing streak with a win in their last game. They have been one of the more disappointing teams this season and they are in the basement of the Southeast Division.
In their last games the Magic beat the Detroit Pistons 98-92 and the Wizards beat the Brooklyn Nets 118-113.
These teams have met twice this season in Orlando with each team winning once.
The Magic only rank 29th in the league in points per game, but a solid 3rd in opponents’ points allowed.

Serge Ibaka was the leading scorer for the Magicin the Pistons game going for 19 points and the bench stepped with Jeff Green and Nikola Vucevic combining for 30 points.
The Magic beat Detroit even though season’s leading scorer Evan Fournier (17.2 ppg) had a terrible game going for only 5 points on 1/7 shooting.
The Magic have not been a good betting team facing the Wizards in the last few seasons. They are only 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 games facing them and only 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 games facing them in the Nation’s Capital.
The Magic are 5-6 on the road this season.
The Wizards only rank 18th in the league in points per game and 20th in opponents’ points per game.
In the win over the Nets in their last game they shot a similar FG% as Brooklyn and they were dominated on the boards, but they won since they forced 22 turnovers and only committed 9.
All 5 starters scored in double figures in the win over the Nets and the solid G duo of John Wall and Bradley Beal combined for 43 points.
Washington must do a better job on the boards in this game, as in the win over Brooklyn they gave up 13 offensive rebounds.
Wall and Beal are the 2 leading scorers for the Wizards and each is averaging over 21 ppg.
Wizards’ C Marcin Gortat is averaging a double-double on the season (11.7 ppg 12.1 rpg) and while he has been solid as of late he has to get help on the glass.
This season the Wizards are 5-5 at home.
