Belinelli searched for someone to pass the ball to, but eventually he just inbounded the ball off of Pistons forward Marcus Morris’ back, caught the ball off the bounce and launched what would have been a game-winning 3-pointer.

Unfortunately, the shot was too late, and the Pistons won the game by a point. Still, what an incredible effort from Belinelli.
