Isaiah Thomas is one tough dude. He’s shown this time after time during his NBA career, and in Game 1 of Boston’s Eastern Conference Semifinal series against the Washington Wizards, Thomas proved this once again.
Thomas was trying to check Wizards forward Otto Porter. It didn’t work out all that well – Porter beat him pretty soundly, so the Celtics guard was playing catch up. John Wall noticed this and he fired a pass to his teammate.
The issue was Wall’s pass was a little behind his Porter, so he and Thomas both tried to get a hand on the ball. Porter was able to reel in the pass, but his elbow caught Thomas in the mouth. If you look closely, you can see Thomas’ tooth go flying.
