Look: Thon Maker gets bloody mouth after big block
Thon Maker made a stellar block on Monday night but paid the price.
Maker met a driving Bobby Portis in front of the rim and rejected the dunk attempt in a sweet block:

Portis’ left hand seemed to smack Maker in the face, causing bleeding to his mouth. The Detroit Pistons big man showed the bloody mouth on the sidelines:

Maker had just checked into the game and only played a minute when that happened. This is only his second game with Detroit since being acquired in a trade with Milwaukee.
