Shawn Marion was back in the starting lineup after missing his first three games of the season to rest a sore left knee.

"My knee definitely feels a whole lot better," Marion said. "We've definitely taken care of it to keep it strong. The way the season is, you got to do what you have to do to be ready."

With Marion back in the lineup, Vince Carter went back to a reserve role with Roddy Beaubois staying with the starters.
