Sub leads Wizards past banged-up Magic

WASHINGTON — Kris Humphries scored 23, Garrett Temple matched his career high with 18 and the Wizards beat the Magic 108-99 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 and a 94-90 lead.

Orlando has lost 10 straight to Washington. The Magic was led by Nikola Vucevic's 19 points and 13 rebounds, and Evan Fournier had 18 points. Orlando was missing guard Victor Oladipo (concussion), Jason Smith (left knee) and guard C.J. Watson (left calf).

Temple started in place of guard Bradley Beal — the former Gator missed his second straight game with an injured shoulder — and played 31 minutes. Temple had played just 35 minutes all season.

"They're better than we are," Magic coach Scott Skiles said.

'ASHAMED' GREEN RETURNS: Heat guard Gerald Green returned to practice after missing six games, the first four with what the team said was due to illness and the past two for a team suspension. Green, 29, expressed remorse for an incident that occurred at his downtown Miami apartment building on Nov. 4. "This whole situation, to me, was an incident that I'm ashamed of," he said. According to police, Green went to the lobby of his apartment building with bloodied hands and asked a worker for help. He fell on a parking ramp, punched a man after getting up and police had to handcuff him for the ambulance ride to a hospital. In other Heat news, guard Dwyane Wade returned to practice while monitoring the status of his hospitalized 8-year-old son, Zion. Wade declined to offer details of his son's ailment.

GAME HIGHLIGHTS: Blake Griffin scored 34 and the host Clippers rallied to beat the Pistons 101-96. … Raymond Felton scored 23 and the Mavericks beat the host Rockets 110-98 without Dirk Nowitzki, Wesley Matthews and Chandler Parsons.
