Recap


Wizards 105, Magic 97: Jordan Crawford scored 27 points and host Washington withstood an early 3-point barrage to snap an eight-game losing streak.

Nene added 23 points and 11 rebounds and Kevin Seraphin scored 17 points as the Wizards handed Orlando its fourth consecutive defeat and beat the Magic for only the second time in 12 meetings.

Arron Afflalo scored 26 points and J.J. Redick came off the bench to add 23 for Orlando, which hit its first five 3-point attempts - four by Jameer Nelson - to bolt to a 25-8 lead midway through the opening quarter.

Crawford scored 14 points and fellow reserve Garrett Temple added seven in the second quarter as the Wizards stormed back to take a 54-51 lead into halftime. They extended the advantage to 15 points with a 12-0 run late in the third quarter.

The Magic responded with a 9-2 spurt to cut the deficit to 80-72 entering the fourth and got within 83-80 with just under nine minutes to play, but Seraphin scored six points in a 13-2 run to restore the lead to 96-82.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Magic G E'Twaun Moore suffered a sprained elbow in the first quarter and did not return. X-rays were negative and he will be re-evaluated when the club returns to Orlando. ... Crawford shot 11-for-16 in his second straight game off the bench to help the Wizards snap Orlando's 12-game streak of holding an opponent under 100 points. ... Magic F Hedo Turkoglu, who broke his hand in the season opener, took part in pregame warmups but did not dress for the contest.
