NEW ORLEANS (AP) - San Antonio's Marco Belinelli won the 3-point contest at NBA All-Star Saturday night.
The Italian, who previously played for New Orleans, needed to win a tiebreaker round in the final to beat Bradley Beal.
The Washington All-Star had made his final six shots, including two ''money balls'' worth two points each, to tie Belinelli's initial final-round score of 19.
Belinelli then racked up an event-high score of 24 for the win.
There were four shooters from each conference.
Belinelli had a score of 19 to win the West, beating Damian Lillard's 18. Beal had a score of 21 to win the East, easily eclipsing defending champ Kyrie Irving's total of 16.
Earlier, the tandem of Portland's Damian Lillard and Utah's Trey Burke won the skills challenge, while Team Bosh, consisting of Miami's Chris Bosh, former NBA star Dominique Wilkins and WNBA player Swin Cash, won the shooting stars event.
