Isaiah Thomas is coming into this second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs under already heartbreaking circumstances. Thomas had traversed the country to return to Boston to play the Wizards today after attending his sister's funeral just yesterday, when he found himself on the other end of an elbow to the face.

Thomas' tooth was knocked out, but he kept playing anyway and drained the above two threes and an additional one—going three for three on threes, sans tooth—smiling the entire time. The team doctor helped Thomas slide his tooth back into place, and now Thomas has gone all Steph Curry with a mouthguard. What a resilient little man. The only hard part is saying the word "three for three threes" without a tooth.
