Magic Beat Wizards 88-86

   ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Jeff Green came off the bench to score 18 points and Evan Fournier added 13 to help the Orlando Magic to an 88-86 win over Washington on Saturday night.
   In a night when the Magic starters struggled offensively, Frank Vogel elected to go with his bench for extended minutes in the fourth quarter and it paid off big. Green scored 10 points in the fourth and Mario Hezonja added eight of his nine points in the final period, while Bismack Biyombo came up with a couple of blocked shots to lift the Magic out of a 12-point third-quarter deficit.
   Biyombo was big all night in the interior blocking shots and changing others when the Wizards came into the lane. He finished with nine points, three blocks and 12 rebounds.
   The Wizards, who were playing without point guard John Wall, couldn't convert down the stretch. After hitting several clutch shots down the stretch during Friday night's win Atlanta, Bradley Beal missed his final three shots and Markieff Morris missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.
