If you learn anything from watching the Wizards games this season, one thing would be never count them out of the fight and each game at home is always a candidate for a victory no matter what and tonight against the Magic was no different.
The bigger story and something that needs to be watched is how big the pickup of Bordan Bogdanovic is for the Wizards.
Bogdanovic scored 15 of his 27 points and made five of his career-high eight 3-pointers during the fourth quarter, and the Wizards came from 17 down to defeat the Magic 115-114.
“I felt today that I can not miss,” a chuckling Bogdanovic said after his sixth game with the Wizards. “I hope that every game I will have that feeling.”
Bradley Beal led Washington with 32 points, and John Wall had 19 points and 10 assists to help the third-place Wizards moved a game ahead of Toronto in the Eastern Conference standings.
Earlier in the game the Wizards questioned the play by Magic Forward Terrence Ross that resulted in Bradley Beal rolling his ankle and having to leave the game with a probable return. The probable ending up working in favor of having him on court and leading the Wizards to another victory ath one one more slot up in the conference standings.
