Fans Are in Love With Isaiah Thomas's Chill AF Reaction to Losing a Tooth During a Game

Good to see the Celtics' All-Star smile during this trying time.

Published May 1, 2017

As tough of a time as it has been for Isaiah Thomas, he was able to briefly laugh and smile yesterday. Albeit, a laugh and smile while missing a front tooth, but nevertheless, a much-needed moment to exhale.

Following his sister's funeral in Washington state, the All-Star point guard had 33 points and nine assists to lead his Boston Celtics to a 123-111 Game 1 victory over the Washington Wizards yesterday. But during that stellar performance, Thomas took an elbow from Wizards' Otto Porter with an instant replay showing the guard's front tooth flying out of his mouth.

Not only did Thomas nonchalantly pick up his tooth off the court, but he proceeded to rally the Celtics back with his big game.

During his post-game press conference, IT gave a chill AF reaction to losing his front tooth, with fans joining him on the jokes about his new look.

Here's the moment that Thomas lost his tooth, how he reacted to it after the game and all the hilarity and praise that ensued from fans thereafter. This gives a whole new meaning to fighting tooth and nail.
