The Washington Wizards need a nice home win to get back to a .500 record. The Washington Wizards are averaging 102.3 points on 43.9 percent shooting and allowing 110.4 points on 46.2 percent shooting. John Wall is averaging 17.7 points and 8.1 assists while Otto Porter Jr. is averaging 13.4 points and 4.6 rebounds. Marcin Gortat is grabbing 7.3 rebounds and Ramon Sessions is dishing 2.3 assists. The Washington Wizards are allowing 38.4 percent shooting from deep and are turning the ball over more than 17 times. The Wiz need to find that consistency to get back on track. The Wizards have won five of their last eight regular season home games. Bradley Beal is questionable with a shoulder injury.
The Magic are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Wizards are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 3 or more days rest. The Magic are 1-6-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Washington.
You guys know the deal by now.. We've been backing the Magic all season and they've shown us no reason to back off. Orlando continues to compete at a high level and has the players to pull this win outright, especially if Beal is still dealing with a banged up shoulder.
