• Belinelli to defend All-Star three-pint crown


    NEW YORK: San Antonio shooting guard Marco Belinelli will defend his title in the Three-Point Contest during the NBA’s All-Star festivities in Brooklyn next week. The Italian will try to become the first repeat winner of the event since Jason Kapono in 2007-08, but will face a talented field that includes Golden State’s sharp-shooting duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Also entered in next Saturday’s contest are Atlanta’s Kyle Korver, the NBA’s leading three-point shooter, 2013 champion Kyrie Irving of Cleveland, All-Star James Harden of Houston, Portland’s Wesley Matthews, and J.J. Redick from the Los Angeles Clippers.
