Shawn Marion flashes back to Phoenix days with 20/10 night
By Marc Stein
Shawn Marion delivered a nostalgic performance Sunday night in Orlando to help the Mavs win their fifth games in sixth tries.
With 20 points and 10 rebounds in the 111-105 road triumph, Marion posted his first 20-and-10 game in nearly two years, dating to April 6, 2011.
As the Elias Sports Bureau reminds, Marion used to do that quite regularly as a member of the Phoenix Suns. From 2000-01 through 2007-08, Marion posted 181 such games in the regular season, good for the fifth-highest total in the league in that span.
Since the 2008-09 season, which Marion split between Miami and Toronto before his move to Dallas in the summer of 2009, Marion has posted 12 20-and-10 games.
