John Wall scored 35 points and the Wizards made several comebacks in the second half, but ultimately fell in Orlando, 97-92. The two teams split their season series at two games apiece.

The game began evenly matched as both teams shot about 50% in the first quarter and the Magic held a slim one point advantage. The Magic would build on that lead with a dominant second quarter and went into the half up by 12. The Wizards would not be down for long as they went on a 13-0 run early in the 3rd quarter and grabbed the lead before going back and forth with Orlando for most of the quarter. The Magic went on a late run of their own to enter the fourth up by seven. The Wizards once again went on an early run in the fourth to tie the game just three minutes in. They would spend the entire fourth quarter trying to get the lead but would never succeed and in the end lost by five.
