WASHINGTON -- Recently after yet another loss, Randy Wittman cracked about desiring an in-game ejection and his inability to pull it off. No chance the Wizards coach had such thoughts over the final three quarters against Orlando. Jordan Crawford scored 27 points and Nene had a season-high 23 points and 11 rebounds as the Washington Wizards snapped their eight-game losing streak by defeating the Orlando Magic 105-97 on Friday night. Owners of the NBA's worst record, Washington had lost 11 of 12 games including five straight at home since upsetting Miami 105-101 on Dec. 4. Kevin Seraphin scored 17 points for the Wizards (4-23). Garrett Temple made his first six shots, scored 13 points and shined defensively in only his second game with Washington. The Wizards fell behind 25-8 midway through the first quarter, but stormed back for a 54-51 halftime lead with Crawford and Temple combining for 29 points on 13 of 16 shooting. Crawford's 3-pointer highlighted a 13-0 third...

Earlier tonight, Washington Wizards forward Emeka Okafor decided to welcome Orlando Magic center Gustavo Ayon to a special block party.Watch as Emeka blocks Ayon's dunk attempt in the second quarter of play with a one-handed denial:
At 7PM tonight, the Magic will take on the Wizards in Washington. Their last match up on December 19th, ended with a 90-83 victory. It was in the last minute of this game that Glen Davis went crashing to the floor with a sprained left shoulder after a hard foul from Emeka Okafor. Tonight, the Magic are looking to settle the score (and I don't mean Tanya Harding-style).
Tweet Toney Douglas is developing a habit of making amazing buzzer beaters. A couple of weeks ago it was this shot from beyond half court to end the first half against the Washington Wizards. On Saturday he was at it again, this time ending the third quarter with a shot you have to see [...]
After yet another heartbreaking loss late in the game to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night, the media gathered as usual in the press room awaiting Randy Wittman’s press conference. In a room that has seen a decrease in the number of representatives, I had a side conversation with one of the writers. I mentioned that I could probably tweet Randy Wittman’s quotes in advance...
