Video: Spurs’ Jackson hurts ankle in freak accident


The San Antonio Spurs having a healthy team lasted for a few games and they looked dominant (7-game win streak) during that stretch.

That streak ended on Thursday night against the New York Knicks and the team's short lived streak of being healthy ended on the same night when Stephen Jackson tripped over a waitress who was courtside taking an order for New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg during the first quarter.

It's a shame Jackson was hurt in an incident that no one would think of. As you'll see in the video, the waitress has her back turned to the action, which probably isn't the wisest decision. She doesn't know what's happening or to get out of the way and Jackson doesn't even know she's there until he falls on her.
