Marco Belinelli had six points, two rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer on 2-of-6 shooting in 19 minutes on Monday.

He was iffy coming in with a sprained ankle, but played through it. He hadn't recorded a block or steal in his previous three games, so it was nice to see them tonight, but his ankle injury has cooled him off. He scored 18, 5 and 24 points in his three games prior to missing one with his injury, and has scored 9 and 6 in his two games since. Chances are he'll bounce back, but Rip Hamilton (8-of-11, 16 points Monday) could put a wrench in those plans if he stays hot after Monday's line.
