Hornets' Marco Belinelli: Scores six points in return from hamstring injury

Belinelli (hamstring) finished with six points (2-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 21 minutes in Monday's 104-85 win over the Grizzlies.

While Belinelli was able to make it through Monday's game without any setbacks to his injured hamstring, which first bothered him in Saturday's win over the Knicks, he was outplayed by fellow reserve Jeremy Lamb, who turned in 21 points and nine rebounds in 23 minutes. Lamb's outing comes on the heels of an 18-point, 17-rebound performance Saturday, so he could be ahead of Belinelli in the pecking order now as coach Steve Clifford's first wing off the bench.
