D. Smith: Coaching staff working on Belinelli's head

Here’s one thing to watch when you see Marco Belinelli play.

His head.

Specifically, his head when he takes catch-and-shoot jump shots, or any jump shot, for that matter.

I’m told the one thing the coaching staff is working on more than anything else with Belinelli is keeping him from tilting his head back when he shoots.

When he does, it takes all the arc off what becomes his line-drive jump shot and if he makes it, it’s usually blind luck.

The coaches tell me it’s not horrible that he seems to shoot a fadeaway as a matter of course but only if his head stays at least level.

After each of the last couple practices I’ve been to, Belinelli’s been one of the last guys on the floor, getting up extra jumpers and working on that head thing.
