GAME NOTES

  • Tonight’s game is the fourth and final meeting between the Washington Wizards and Orlando Magic The Magic currently lead the season series, 3-0.
  • Last game versus Charlotte...The Wizards defeated the Bobcats , 113-85, last night at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte... Jordan Crawford led the Wizards with 20 points on 7-12 shooting ...John Wall scored 2 points and had 12 assists...Cartier Martin scored 19 points on 4-of-8 from 3-point range...James Singleton scored a season-high 18 points and grabbed 12 rebounds...Roger Mason Jr. posted 17 points on 5-of-9 from 3-point range….Jan Vesely attained his first career double-double with 11 points and 11 boards. The Wizards are now 3-0 versus the Bobcats this season.
  • Last game versus Orlando... The Wizards dropped a hard fought contest, 102-95 to the Magic on February 29th in Orlando...John Wall led the Wizards with 33 points, Jordan Crawford added 18, and Trevor Booker pulled down a team-high 13 rebounds.
  • Injury Update:Nene and Trevor Booker are both day-to-day with plantar fascitis. It is not likely that either will play tonight for the Wizards. They have missed the previous six games. Dwight Howard did not play last night for the Magic and is listed as doubtful for tonight's game with back spasms.
  • Key Matchup: Jordan Crawford vs. J.J. Redick - Night in and night out, Jordan Crawford continues to score for the Wizards and has been relied upon even more so since the deadline trade. Last night he dropped in 20 points in just 21 minutes to lead the team in a blowout win over Charlotte. Tonight, he's matched up with another sharpshooter in J.J. Redick who is having the best year of his career. Averaging 11.1 ppg, Redick is deadly from behind the arc and it will be critical for the Wizards to know where he is at all times when the Magic are on offense.
  • Tonight's game can be seen on Comcast SportsNet or heard on WJFK The Fan 106.7 at 7:00pm.
