ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Tobias Harris had 30 points and 11 rebounds to help the Orlando Magic break an eight-game losing streak with a 97-92 victory over the Washington Wizards on Friday night.

Maurice Harkless added 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds, while reserves E'Twaun Moore and Andrew Nicholson scored 15 and 14, respectively, for Orlando.

John Wall led the Wizards with 35 points, nine rebounds and two assists. Martell Webster was the only other Wizard in double figures, scoring 19.

Harris had the key basket, a 15-foot floater that gave the Magic a 93-88 lead with 1:22 left in the game.

Wall made two free throws to get the Wizards within 93-90, but after the Magic missed, Wall couldn't convert at the other end.

Harris and Beno Udrih combined to hit four of six free throws to keep the Magic lead safe.
