Through 3 Quarters

Only one more quarter stands between the Washington Wizards and the victory they were favored to collect going into this night. It’s looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the Orlando Magic as Washington lead 82-59.

The Wizards have been led by center Montrezl Harrell, who so far has 16 points and five assists along with seven boards. Orlando hasn’t had any offensive standouts so far with all players held to 12 points or fewer.

Washington’s lead is tied with the biggest they have had this year going into the fourth quarter.

What to Know

After a few days’ rest for both teams, the Orlando Magic and the Washington Wizards will meet up at 7 p.m. ET Nov. 13 at Amway Center. Washington will be strutting in after a win while the Magic will be stumbling in from a defeat.

There’s no need to mince words: Orlando lost to the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday, and they lost bad. The score wound up at 123-90. Orlando was down 94-75 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Shooting guard Terrence Ross (17 points) was the top scorer for Orlando.

Meanwhile, things were close when Washington and the Cleveland Cavaliers clashed on Wednesday, but the Wizards ultimately edged out the opposition 97-94. Washington’s center Montrezl Harrell did his thing and dropped a double-double on 24 points and 11 boards.

The Magic are expected to lose this next one by 4.5. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn’t have high expectations for them since the team is 4-8 ATS when expected to lose.
