"I'm not going to give up," Wizards' forward Martell Webster said after the most recent 90-83 loss to Orlando.

Webster may sense that the team is starting to feel sorry for itself as Washington's record dropped to a league worst 3-20. 

"The moral of the story is you can't give up, you’ve got to keep fighting, you’ve got to continue to get better," Webster told reporters in Orlando. 

Webster scored 11 points and had 4 rebounds in the Magic loss Wednesday night that ran the current losing streak to five games. 

"I am not looking to change anything. Everything is solid. Everything is the way I want it to be. We’ve just got to finish games and continue to be resilient," Webster added. 

Wizards center Nene led the way off the bench with 20 points and said he's not waving the white flag on the season.

"It's been hard," Nene said. "Right now it's hard but when you start winning everybody will want to come. We’ve got to remember this moment when we are losing."

The Wizards played against Orlando without their second leading scorer, shooting guard Bradley Beal, who had a sore back following a scary spill against Atlanta a night earlier. Coach Randy Wittman had to use his eighth different starting lineup this season against the Magic. "Anytime you are missing one of your guys it disrupts things," Wittman said. 

"We’ve just got to play a full 48 minutes," Wizards guard Jordan Crawford said. 'It's the little things we’ve got to do. It's the little things that will help us win." 

The Wizards visit a team that has lost seven in a row in 7-21 Detroit tomorrow night and then they host the Pistons Saturday at Verizon Center. If there was ever a time to turn things around, it's right now for the Wizards.
