See Poythress grabbing at his mouth after the dunk? That’s because he got his damn tooth stuck in the net! It’s like the giant-basketball-man version of tying string around your tooth and slamming a door shut, although we’re pretty sure Poythress has already lost his baby teeth. Not 100 percent sure, but pretty sure.
