Spurs’ Marco Belinelli passes Rasheed Wallace on NBA’s all-time 3-pointers list

Marco Belinelli, Spurs

San Antonio Spurs shooting guard Marco Belinelli has passed Rasheed Wallace on the NBA’s all-time 3-pointers list.

Marco Belinelli now has more than 1,087 career 3-pointers. Wallace made 1,086 shots from beyond the arc during his NBA career.

Belinelli is in his second stint with the Spurs. The 32-year-old sharpshooter entered Friday averaging 10.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game while shooting 41.6 percent from the field, 38.6 percent from beyond the arc and 89.5 percent from the free-throw line.

Belinelli won the 2014 championship with the Spurs. He began his NBA career with the Golden State Warriors back in 2007. Since then, he has played for eight teams, such as the Toronto Raptors, New Orleans Hornets (now Pelicans), Chicago Bulls, Sacramento Kings, Charlotte Hornets, Atlanta Hawks, Philadelphia 76ers and Spurs.

Belinelli is never set when he’s shooting from beyond the arc. He always seems to be leaning left or right, yet the shot goes in more often than not.

The Spurs are lucky to have the sharpshooter back in San Antonio this season. Marco is probably the most reliable 3-point shooter on the San Antonio rotation and spreads the floor well for big man LaMarcus Aldridge and shooting guard DeMar DeRozan.

Belinelli has career averages of 10.0 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists.
