Yesterday, Team Italy defeated Team Georgia in exhibition play 85-69 as Eurobasket nears.
Italy was led by the newest member of the San Antonio Spurs, guard Marco Belinelli, with 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting from the field and two of those 21 points came off a ridiculous move to the rim which should make Spurs fans drool over what he will bring to the team next season.
In the third quarter, with Italy up 38-35, Marco caught a pass off the fast-break and absolutely made a Georgian player look silly with a behind-the-back dribble, fake pass, for the right-handed layup move. It is quite Manu Ginobili-esque!
Check out the sick move!
And if that wasn't enough to whet your appetite Spurs fans, check out Marco with a nice fade away shot.
In case you didn't catch the game, here are the highlights from Italy and Georgia's game last night complete with more from Belinelli.
Belinelli might be an efficient addition to the Spurs lineup. Will he enough to make them nba champs. Hardly!! If coach Pop and Mr. Buford and Holt and to the rest of Spurs fan out there don't mind, Don't love your nickels so much. When will you learn? Isn't the past enough lesson? How Bonner and Splitter performed. I will make some suggestions. Get rid of Patty Mills and hire him as member of the cheering squad and amnesty Matt Bonner. At his age, he can't change his game anymore. Maybe Splitter too. Take a closer look at the lineup. Trade Mills, Bonner and Splitter for ASIK of the Rockets, or for Varejao of the Cavs, or sign Tyrus Thomas who, are 26, has the experience, body and height to play 4. Give him another chance for a change instead, rather than playing the same guys or take the chance on Dexter Pittman. These are big men who can protect the rim and play defense. Are you all blind? TD is NOT getting any younger. Now, the Spurs gave the invite to Seth Curry at the training camp. WHY? He undersized like Denmon. Isn't there enough undersized players in the lineup? Or, do mgnt want a lineup dwarves?.
@rtesoro440 Spurs were SECONDS away from the chip and now the SAME team is a "doormat"? You are truly a moron. And NO team CAN amnesty any player AFTER AMNESTY DEADLINE HAS PASSED which was nearly a MONTH ago. And Thomas sucks, Pittman sucks and Asik is a black hole on O and therefore also sucks, much like your posts.
he has some manu in him so that by itself should make him a fan favorite. and he can hit big shots. excellent yet underrated pickup by the spurs. we are better than the team that lost in game 7 by adding marco to the team.
@JeffProjectSpurs Well, he did come from a very defensive-oriented team in Chicago so I would like to think so. But who knows.
