Orlando Magic at Washington Wizards

The Orlando Magic takes on the Washington Wizards at Capital One Arena on Tuesday night. The Magic (8-11) come into Tuesday’s game heading in the wrong direction, as they’ve dropped four of the last six contests.

Evan Fournier paced the Magic with 32 points, adding three rebounds and one steal. Terrance Ross supplied 19 points, four boards. one assist, one steal and one block.

The Wizards (6-12) have had plenty of ups and downs thus far this season primarily due to their shoddy defense, and they’ll come into Tuesday’s contest on one of their downswings. Washington has dropped four of its last five games, with their most recent stumble coming at the hands of the Los Angeles Clippers by a 150-125 score on Sunday night. Rui Hachimura paced the Wizards with 30 points, adding nine rebounds, three assists and one steal.

Davis Bertans registered 20 points, four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block. Isaiah Thomas contributed 16 points, four rebounds and four assists. The Wizards will likely list C.J. Miles (wrist) and Moritz Wagner (ankle) as questionable at best for Tuesday’s contest. Ian Mahinmi (Achilles) will remain out.
