Video: Reggie Evans Gets Tooth Knocked Out, Stays In Game

Let’s make this clear: Reggie Evans got hit in the mouth, lost a tooth, kept going for the rebound, played until a dead ball, then walked off the court to get the blood cleaned off so he could keep playing. Reggie Evans is tougher than you.

My favorite part of the video: the reactions from YES announcers Ian Eagle and Jim Spanarkel when Evans takes the tooth out and puts it right in front of them.

Evans finished the 105-96 Brooklyn Nets victory with 14 points and 20 rebounds. It was his 9th 20-rebound game, which leads the league. After the game, he put a gold-plated grill into his mouth and walked out without speaking to reporters.
