PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Andre Iguodala scored 21 points, seldom-used Donyell Marshall got his 10 points in the fourth quarter and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Miami Heat 85-77 on Sunday.

Dwyane Wade, coming off a 50-point performance in a triple-overtime victory over Utah on Saturday, was held to 18. The NBA’s leading scorer looked tired after playing a career-high 52 1/2 minutes against the Jazz. He shot 8-for-21 in 34 1/2 minutes.

Thaddeus Young scored 17 points and Samuel Dalembert had eight points and 12 rebounds for Philadelphia, which won its third straight and moved within two games of Miami for fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
