Beal’s shot at buzzer lifts Wizards past Magic

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Bradley Beal converted a lob pass at the buzzer to lift the Washington Wizards to a 91-89 victory over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night.

John Wall led the Wizards with 21 points and 11 assists, while Nene added 12 points, Kris Humphries scored 11 and Marcin Gortat 10. Washington, which scored the final seven points, beat Orlando for the seventh straight time.

Victor Oladipo had 17 points to lead the Magic. Tobias Harris added 15 and Elfrid Payton had 12 for Orlando, which led 89-84 after Harris’ dunk with 1:37 left.

Wizards forward Rasual Butler’s free throw with 16 seconds left tied the score at 89.

Oladipo missed a 20-foot jumper and Washington rebounded with 0.8 seconds on the clock. Andre Miller came off the bench and threw the lob pass at the rim. Beal outjumped Oladipo and laid it in as the buzzer sounded.

(The previous version of this story incorrectly said Harris dunked with 1:57 left. The correct time was 1:37.)
