Marco Belinelli Unhappy With Jerryd Bayless’ Body-Check Foul (VIDEO)

by March 19, 2015

Milwaukee Bucks guard Jerryd Bayless basically tackled Marco Belinelli on a boneheaded defensive play Wednesday night.

Belinelli said it was “a really bad foul”, and knew the hit was coming but didn’t expect a body-check on his three-point attempt.

The San Antonio Spurs won easily 114-103.

Per the Express-News:

“That was a really bad foul,” Belinelli said. “This was my first time that I get fouled like that. I know competition is part of the game, but that was really bad.”


“I knew it was coming, yes,” Belinelli said. “That’s why I took the 3. I think before, when I cut (off the ball) like I do always, he said I tried to break his elbow or something like that. I don’t know. That was a really bad foul.”


The foul cost Milwaukee dearly. Belinelli made all three shots to restore the Spurs’ lead to 13, and it never dipped into single-digits again as they cruised 114-103. […] Bayless described the situation as a “misunderstanding” and left before taking further questions.
