The Warriors are deadly from behind the arc, leading the NBA in 3-point field goal percentage (.428) thanks to Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes and Andre Iguodala.

But they could be even more dangerous if they still had Marco Belinelli.

The former Warrior is in his first season with the San Antonio Spurs and is leading the league in 3-point field goal percentage. He was drafted by the Warriors in 2007 and spent his first two seasons in Oakland.

His .550 (22-of-40) percentage this season puts him ahead of Houston's Aaron Brooks' .533 percentage.

Belinelli's previous season-high came in 2010-11 when he shot .414 (134-324) with the New Orleans Hornets (now Pelicans). His career 3-point percentage is .392 (470-1199)

Barnes is third at .520 (13-of-25) percent. Iguodala, who is out with a hamstring injury, is 11th in the league with a .479 (23-of-48).

While Thompson has made the most 3-point field goals, he ranks 20th in percentage made (.450). Curry is third in 3-point shots made, but he ranks just 33rd in 3-point percentage.
