Wiz Blow Out Magic - Win Third Straight

Written By Chris C-Ford ---- Monday, January 14, 2013

The Wizards never trailed Monday night and dominated the Orlando Magic 120-91. By far the Wizards biggest victory of the season.

For Wizards fans it's a sight for sore eyes; a healthy roster for the first time all year leading to a three game win streak. Six players were in double figures for Washington and the team defense is stronger than it's been all year

The Wizards did play sloppy at the end of the first half and the Magic were able to cut their deficit from 19 to 6. But for the most part Washington dominated, in fact the Wizards scored 37 in the third quarter, the most of any quarter this season.

Its obvious the team has a new swagger with John Wall back in the lineup. Wall had 12 points and six assists in 20 minutes off the bench.

But Wall isn't the only Wizard returning from injury contributing to the team. A.J. Price played well in his third game back dropping18 he also had six assists.

Believe it or not Wizards fans but Jan Vesely had yet another impressive game. Vesely finished strong in the paint multiple times including a few alley oops.  On the night he had ten points seven rebounds and four assists. Hopefully the negative criticism on Vesely was pre-mature and we can look forward to more progress from the former number six overall pick.

Kevin Seraphin also continues to impress snagging 18 points with five rebounds and four assists.  

The Wizards will now take their three game win streak out west for a five game road trip. The first stop is Wednesday night in Sacramento.

And...John Wall...nuff' said...
