Smith gets Gay's spot in dunk contest
Gay was forced to pull out Tuesday because of a strained left hip. Smith also competed in the 2005 event.
"I have a few things under my sleeve," Smith said Tuesday after the Nuggets won in Miami. "I can't really talk about it. It's top secret, man."
The dunk contest is the final event of All-Star Saturday night.
