The Wizards' nine-game losing streak finally came to an end on Monday. They strolled past Detroit with points to spare, taking the game 126-107. The win was just what the Wizards needed coming off of a 136-108 loss in their prior match.

Among those leading the charge was Kyle Kuzma, who dropped a double-double on 32 points and 12 rebounds.

Meanwhile, the Magic waltzed into Sunday's match with six straight wins but they left with seven. They came out on top against Charlotte by a score of 130-117.

The Magic's success was the result of a balanced attack that saw several players step up, but Cole Anthony led the charge by scoring 30 points along with 7 assists and 7 rebounds. Another player making a difference was Franz Wagner, who scored 30 points along with 7 rebounds.

Washington's victory was their fourth straight on the road, which pushed their record up to 3-14. That rough patch can't be blamed on the team's offensive performance across that stretch, as they averaged 120.8 points per game. As for Orlando, they are on a roll lately: they've won eight of their last nine games, which provided a nice bump to their 12-5 record this season.

Not only did both teams in this Wednesday's match win their last matches, they also took care of their bettors and covered the spread. Going forward, the Magic are the favorite in this one, as the experts expect to see them win by ten points. This contest will be Washington's tenth straight as the underdogs (so far over this stretch they are 4-5 against the spread).
