Reggie Evans wins this weekend’s Toughness Award.
The Nets’ forward took a hit to the mouth in Saturday’s game against the Bobcats, lost a tooth in the process, and kept going up for the rebound. Evans continued playing until the next dead ball, when he walked off the court to have the blood cleaned up by trainers so he could keep playing.
Broadcasters Ian Eagle and Jim Spanarkel confirmed Evans had lost a tooth when he casually placed it on the table in front of them.
Evans finished the win with 14 points and 20 rebounds.
