Rosa pinch ran for Lawrie after the third basema Antworten

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A starter throughout much of his career, Jeff Green is adjusting to the role coming off the bench in his first season with the Orlando Magic.But there have been nights so far this season when it has all seemed so natural for the versatile veteran. Green certainly appeared in his element Saturday night as he knocked down several big shots as part of a second-unit that helped the Magic overcome a 12-point third-quarter deficit to come away with an 88-86 win over the Washington Wizards at home.Green led his team with 18 points off the bench as the Magic improved to .500 with its third straight win after starting the season 0-3.My job is to just go play basketball, said Green, who scored 10 of his points in the fourth quarter. It doesnt matter if I come off the bench, start, play five minutes, play 30 minutes. My job is the same. I just have to be aggressive with the minutes I play.Im just finding my rhythm and thats what its all about.Green, who is playing behind Aaron Gordon at the small forward spot, led the second unit which provided energy in both the first and second halves to pull the Magic out of double-digit deficits. The bench, which also includes Bismack Biyombo, D.J. Augustin and Mario Hezonja was so impressive that Frank Vogel left them in the game down the critical stretch as the Wizards threatened.Biyombo was huge in the paint on the defensive end, coming up with 12 rebounds and three big block shots to energize the team. Hezonja, a second-year swingman, finally broke out of his slump, by scoring eight of his nine points in the fourth quarter on clutch baskets.Thats what we need from the second unit, come in with a lot energy, scoring mentality and just be more aggressive, said Evan Fournier, who finished with 13 points.Vogel admitted that second-unit gave the team a much-needed lift.We road some of those guys out the rest of the game because of their first-quarter energy and obviously they got going late into the third and into the fourth, said Vogel, whose team has won back-to-back games at home. So credit those guys for turning the game around.The Wizards (1-4), who were playing without point guard John Wall, struggled to come up with shots down the stretch even though Markieff Morris came close to knocking down a game-winning 3-point shot at the buzzer. Morris led the team with 18 points while Bradley Beal added 15.A few missed defensive assignments, said Wizards coach Scott Brooks. They hit some 3s. They got some breaks.TIP-INS:Wizards: As expected, Wall did not play in Saturday nights game against Magic. He is not playing in back-to-back night games while still recovering from offseason surgery on both knees. Rookie Tomas Satoransky started in his place and veteran Trey Burke served as the backup.Magic: Orlando had lost 12 straight games to the Washington Wizards entering Saturday nights game. ... The Magic entered Saturday night averaging 13.2 offensive rebounds per game, which ranks second in the NBA. ... The Magic debuted their new dark grey uniforms.WATCHING IBAKA SURGEWizards coach Scott Brooks had a front seat view of Serge Ibakas transition from Spain to the NBA when the Seattle Supersonics (Oklahoma City Thunder) drafted him in 2009 and Brooks was the head coach. Ibaka was a talented player but didnt speak English initially so explaining what he wanted from Ibaka was a challenge for Brooks.My first (go-around) with him was very interesting, Brooks said. We didnt know how to communicate. Even on the basketball court the first couple of months it was very difficult but I give Serge a lot of credit. He came and took English lessons and really challenged himself to pick up the language.UP NEXTWizards: Washington returns home to face the Houston Rockets on Monday.Magic: Orlando plays at the Chicago Bulls on Monday at the United Center.

TORONTO -- Brett Lawrie has apologized to the Blue Jays after an angry dugout exchange with manager John Gibbons. Lawrie was fired up after teammate Adam Lind was held by third base coach Luis Rivera on Lawries fly ball during the ninth inning of Sundays 6-5 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. When he returned to the dugout, Lawrie and Gibbons yelled at each other as Jose Bautista stepped in to talk down the third baseman from Langley, B.C. The argument became a moot point shortly after when Munenori Kawasaki hit a two-run double to win the game for Toronto. Lawrie declined to speak to media before Mondays game against the Atlanta Braves, but he addressed his teammates privately. Gibbons said hed spoken to Lawrie and considered the matter settled. "Its over with. We dealt with it. Weve just moved on," said Gibbons. Bautista also tried to downplay the exchange, and repeated he believed Lawrie had been confused by what was happening on the field. "Everyone noticed his reaction was not the best," said Bautista. "But I talked to him and I understood that he got confused a little bit. Caught up in the moment, thats it. Its in the past. It got addressed. Shouldnt be any problem moving forward." Lind, not known for his speed, said hed already made his mind up to stop at third. "Thank God I didnt go, Id probably have been out." "I know (Lawrie) wants the RBBI," added Lind.dddddddddddd. "He wants to drive in runs to help his team win ballgames. Sometimes the smart thing to do is be conservative, especially when youre behind." Lawrie, who is batting .199 with five homers and 14 RBI in 36 games, is known for his fiery temper and all-out style of play that has sometimes gotten him into trouble since making his major-league debut with the Blue Jays in 2011. "His intensity is what makes him good. So I dont think that he should not play with intensity or dial it down," said Bautista. The Blue Jays announced that Lawrie was day-to-day with a leg injury after stealing second base in the sixth inning of Mondays game against the Atlanta Braves. Mark DeRosa pinch ran for Lawrie after the third baseman advanced to third on Emilio Bonifacios ground out. It was an eventful series for Lawrie. The 23-year-old was also ejected from Fridays game following a strikeout when he dumped his helmet and tossed his batting gloves in a manner that umpire Dan Bellino took offence to. Gibbons was also ejected for coming to Lawries defence. On Monday, Gibbons reiterated he didnt think his argument with Lawrie was a big deal. "I like Brett. Im glad we have him," said Gibbons. "I think hes going to be a good player, a real good player for a lot of years. It just blew up on him yesterday but its over with as far as Im concerned."
