Marco Belinelli scored 12 points with two triples, four rebounds and three assists in Saturday's loss.
Belinelli hit a corner fadeaway as time expired in regulation to send this one to overtime after Philly gifted Boston some points. It was a huge shot, but unfortunately game ops (and his teammates and the crowd) thought it was a triple. Confetti fell as the refs restored order and a small delay occurred as the teams waited for the final bits of confetti to fall. It sucked the wind out of the building and while Belinelli nearly brought it all back with his game-tying triple attempt at the OT buzzer coming shockingly close, the Sixers now face a 0-3 deficit. Despite being more or less torched on defense, he finished as a plus-15 on the day. We'll see if he can get hot from the field to help Philly avoid a sweep in Game 4.
