The Toronto Raptors took a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals on Friday night with a 105-92 win over the Golden State Warriors. The impressive Game 4 perfromance came at a cost.
Raptors guard Fred VanVleet took an inadvertent Shaun Livingston elbow in the 4th quarter. He was left laying on the floor bleeding and missing a tooth.

VanVleet was taken to the locker room and received seven stitches to close the wound under his eye. The tooth isn’t going to be as easily repaired.
If losing a tooth and getting stitches is what it took for the Raptors to win Game 4, then I’m sure VanVleet would do it again.
