WASHINGTON (AP) — Nene and reserve Kris Humphries scored 16 points apiece, John Wall had 15 points and 10 assists, and the Washington Wizards improved their impressive start with a 98-93 victory over the Orlando Magic on Saturday night.

Reserve Otto Porter added 13 points as the Wizards won their third straight and moved to 7-2, their best start since opening 7-1 during the 1974-75 season.

Washington’s bench outscored Orlando’s reserves 48-13.

All five Orlando starters scored in double figures, led by Tobias Harris with 19 points and Victor Oladipo with 18.

Oladipo, in his second game back after missing nine games with a facial fracture, made his first start and played 32 minutes. Wearing a protective face mask, Oladipo shot 7 of 18 and had a team-high seven assists.

Orlando had won two straight.
