Marco Belinelli Breaks Out and Wins the NBA Three-Point Contest

This year’s NBA All-Star Three-Point Contest was a major event this year. The event went to a third round with San Antonio Spurs guard Marco Belinelli defeating Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal to take home the trophy for the Western Conference. Beal made the contest exciting by hitting his last five shots in the second round to match Belinelli’s score (19) and force a tiebreaker. Belinelli hit eight of his last 10 shots in overtime to put up a contest-winning 24 points.

Belinelli was blinding his opponents with a very colorful PE of the Nike Hyperdunk 2013. Some other notable shoes included Stephen Curry in an All-Star PE of the Under Armour Anatomix Spawn, Kevin Love in an All-Star edition of the 361 Degrees 3.0, and Beal with the Nike Zoom Hyperrev in his second place finish.
