ORLANDO - Shawn Marion scored 23 of his 29 points in the first half and Joe Johnson had a career-high 27 as the Phoenix Suns snapped a four-game road losing streak by beating the Orlando Magic 110-107 Friday night.
Stephon Marbury added 22 points and eight assists, and his baseline floater with 1:46 remaining gave the Suns the lead for good.
After Orlando's Mike Miller missed a free throw with 37 seconds to go that would've tied the game at 106, Johnson hit four free throws down the stretch to seal the win.
