Jan. 18 (UPI) — Point guard Chris Dunn made a dunk and dislocated his teeth on the floor during the Chicago Bulls’ loss to the Golden State Warriors.
He stole the ball from Klay Thompson in the fourth quarter and sprinted for a coast-to-coast bucket. He elevated to the rim and secured the ball with both hands. He lost his balance when he was coming down and missed landing on Warriors star Stephen Curry.
Instead, he crashed to the floor face-first. Dunn stayed on the ground for a while, holding his teeth.
“INJURY UPDATE: Kris Dunn chipped and dislocated two front teeth when he fell with 2:52 left in the fourth quarter in tonight’s game,” the Bulls tweeted after the game. “He was also evaluated for potential concussion and at this time is clear of concussion symptoms. He will be re-evaluated tomorrow.”
Dunn scored 16 points and had five rebounds and four assists in 29 minutes of action during the 119-112 loss at the United Center.
“I came to the back with him and he’s all good, coherent,” Dunn’s teammate Zach LaVine told the Chicago Tribune. “He’s a really tough kid. Whenever he does something, I think he does it to the extreme. He did the [dislocated] finger, now the face.”
“He left a little dent, which is crazy. He has some strong teeth, must be drinking milk.”
