Maurice Evans, Keith Bogans and Rashard Lewis each scored 17 points.

Hedo Turkoglu had 12 points and five assists, and Carlos Arroyo added 11 points, four rebounds and six assists for the Magic, who have won six of their last seven games overall.

Washington was led by Antawn Jamison's 19 points and six rebounds. DeShawn Stevenson added 17 points, five rebounds and four assists.

Nick Young and Oleksiy Pecherov scored 15 points apiece, and Roger Mason added 14 for the Wizards, who had won their previous two outings.

It was their largest losing margin at home this season.
