Donyell Marshall is becoming the Sixers' late-game specialist off the bench.

Marshall, a 15th-year pro, went 3-for-5 from three-point land in 11 fourth-quarter minutes during Sunday's home win over the Heat and then hit all three of his fourth-quarter three-pointers in Tuesday's stunning 94-93 victory over the Lakers to start a five-game Western Conference trip.

Marshall has scored 67 of his 79 points (.848) in the final period this season for the Sixers. The Sixers not named Marshall went 4-for-29 from downtown in the two games, with Marshall hitting 6-of-8.

Head coach Tony DiLeo said he had inserted Marshall, who had only played 11 minutes since Jan. 16, into the Miami game "just to shake it up a little bit."

"When you're called upon, even though you haven't played in a while, you come in and execute and perform," DiLeo said. "That's what he did."

The Sixers outscored the Heat by 15 with Marshall on the floor, the Lakers by 12 with Marshall in the game and the Suns by 12 with Marshall, who had 12 points on 3-for-5 shooting from three-point land versus Phoenix.

"I work out all the time to stay ready," Marshall said. "Even though I haven't been playing, I still get some side (work in) because you never know when your name is going to be called."

SUNS 126, SIXERS 116: The Sixers scored more than enough points to win, but lost because they couldn't stop the Suns. Phoenix's 126 points was easily the most allowed by the Sixers this season (the previous high was 114) and the Suns had 53 field goals on .576 shooting. The Sixers were out-rebounded 44-31 and missed nine of their 27 free throws in having their four-game winning streak snapped.

Thaddeus Young and Andre Miller led the Sixers, who had six players in double-figures, with 23 points apiece. Lou Williams added 21 of the bench's 43 points. Shaquille O'Neal tallied 26 points and 11 rebounds for Phoenix.
