Video: Tim Duncan smacks Chris "Birdman" Andersen in face with ball
Last night, the Nuggets beat the Spurs in San Antonio for their third straight win -- great news given their pre-All-Star-break swoon. But in the game's most memorable moment, Nugget Chris Andersen definitely wasn't the victor. In the first quarter, veteran Spur Tim Duncan smacks in the face with the ball, then dunks on him. Clearly, rumors of Duncan's demise have been greatly exaggerated. See the video below.
