WASHINGTON (AP) — John Wall fell one point shy of his first triple-double of the season, Marcin Gortat had 14 points and 14 rebounds, and the Washington Wizards beat the Orlando Magic 96-80 on Monday night to sweep the season series.
Presented by Wizards owner Ted Leonsis with an NBA All-Star jersey before the opening tip, Wall hit a 3-pointer a little more than a minute into the third quarter — the first shot made from beyond the arc by either team — to open an 11-0 run that put Washington in control.
Wall wound up with nine points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds after missing a floater with about 50 seconds left.
The Wizards have won two in a row following a five-game losing streak.
