Spurs’ Belinelli Wins 3-Point Contest

San Antonio’s Marco Belinelli won the 3-point contest at NBA All-Star Saturday night. Belinelli made his final three shots to finish with 19 points, edging Damian Lillard by one to advance to the final from the West. All-Stars Stephen Curry and Kevin Love both finished with 16 points.

Bradley Beal had 21 points to win the East bracket over defending champion Kyrie Irving, Orlando’s Arron Afflalo and Brooklyn All-Star Joe Johnson, who was shooting in slow motion and had three balls left on his final rack and just 11 points when time expired.

Beal then tied Belinelli to force a tiebreaker. Belinelli won it by making six straight shots at one point, sweeping his fourth rack.
