This happened right off the tip-off of tonight's Bucks-Bobcats game. Larry Sanders won the jump ball cleanly and on his way down, his elbow/forearm makes solid contact with Bill Kennedy's face.

Kennedy staggered and remained on one knee for a few minutes, but was able to remain in the game. Sanders, meanwhile, had a much better night. His 24 points and 13 rebounds were career highs and the Bucks walked all over the Bobcats 131-102.
