WASHINGTON (AP) -- Kris Humphries scored 23 points, Garrett Temple matched his career high with 18 points and the Washington Wizards beat the Orlando Magic 108-99 on Saturday night to end a three-game losing streak.

Humphries made a career-high five 3-pointers, including one with 4:45 remaining as part of an 8-0 Washington run for a 94-90 lead.

Orlando has lost 10 straight to Washington. It was led by Nikola Vucevic's 19 points and 13 rebounds, and Evan Fournier had 18 points.

Temple started in place of injured Bradley Beal and played 31 minutes. Before this game, Temple played just 35 minutes all season.

John Wall had 15 points and 11 assists for the Wizards.

After a loss Tuesday night to Oklahoma City, Wizards coach Randy Wittman sniped at Marcin Gortat, who had just one defensive rebound in 27 minutes.

Before the game, he predicted Gortat would bounce back, and Gortat did with 10 rebounds and 13 points. Gortat said this week that he didn't appreciate the public criticism.



Magic: Orlando coach Scott Skiles and Wittman played on the Indiana Pacers in 1988-89. They both grew up in Indiana.

Wizards: Washington played its eighth game - tied for fewest in the league. "They've had a lot of rest, not typically a good formula for the other team," Skiles said. Wittman didn't want to attribute his team's inconsistent performance to playing sparingly.


Orlando played without Oladipo for the second game. He's out due to a concussion, and there's no timetable for his return. F-C Jason Smith missed his fourth game with a sore left knee. ... Beal missed his second straight game with a sore left shoulder.


Orlando hosts Minnesota on Wednesday night.

Washington hosts Milwaukee on Tuesday night.
