The Washington Wizards may be in the bottom half of the current Eastern Conference standings, but they are attempting to do something about it with their balanced offense. For the teams third straight win they defeated the visiting Orland Magic on Jan. 14, 2013, with a dominant 91-120 performance.
With six players in double digit scoring and four of them with 17 or more points the team spread their scoring around with a complete effort from the starting five and the bench as the box score shows the overwhelming balance of the game going the way of the victors.
Emeka Okafor led the Wizards with 19 points, 11 rebounds and two assists as he set the pace for fellow front man Kevin Seraphin who scored 18 points off the bench while adding five rebounds and four assists.
Orlando's Jameer Nelson had the best night for his team with 19 points and 12 assists, but it was by far not enough to see his side match the total inspired team effort of the Wizards. Nikola Vucevic and J.J. Redick were both also in double digits but were unable to truly make a big difference on the night for the struggling Magic.
