Orlando was coming in on the back half of a back-to-back. The Magic lost a heartbreaker in Chicago on Sunday night, surrendering a lead with less than a minute left.

So yeah, on paper it looked like Washington would have its hands full again. Once again, what’s on paper couldn’t tell the whole story on this night. Every Wizard who was activated scored.

Orioles agree on one year deal with Britton

The player and agent sit on one side of the table, while the general manager sits on the other. In the middle of the table sits an arbitrator who exchanges figures between both parties until a suitable agreement has been reached. Now of course no custody or alimony...

The Hornets were missing scoring guard Kemba Walker (18.8 PPG) after his left knee surgery last week. They had enough guys pitch in to make up for it.
