ORLANDO, Fla. — Defensive stops were not a problem for the Orlando Magic against the Washington Wizards until it mattered most.
The Wizards, who struggled on offense for a considerable part of the night, used a run late in the fourth quarter by John Wall to force overtime and pulled out a 105-101 victory.
The Magic led 85-79 with 1:55 to go in regulation after two free throws by Tobias Harris. But Wall, who was only 1 of 8 from the floor through three quarters, had eight points in the final 1:05, including a game-tying 3-pointer over Harris.
Victor Oladipo missed a 3 from the top of the key in the closing seconds.
The Wizards shot only 36.6 percent from the floor in regulation but went 6 of 8 during the extra five-minute period. Both Wall and Trevor Ariza ended up with 21 points, and Ariza was one of three Wizards with at least 11 rebounds.
Bradley Beal hustled back on defense to block a breakaway layup by Jameer Nelson, and the Wizards responded on the other end with a 3-pointer by Ariza to take a 99-97 lead with a minute to go in overtime.
THE DIFFERENCE MAKER
Wall had eight points late in regulation and four more in overtime. He also finished with 11 assists.
STAT OF THE GAME
The Wizards became the first team other than the Philadelphia 76ers not to top 100 points against the Magic in regulation since the All-Star break.
