Dirk Nowitzki, Carl Landry injured in under-rim collision (video)

The Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki and Houston’s Carl Landry were injured in a gruesome collision in the second half of Friday night’s game.

Apparently, the impact left more than just a wound in Nowitzki’s elbow. Five of Landry’s teeth were cracked on the play with pieces lodging underneath the German’s skin, causing a deep cut to his right elbow that required at least three stitches.

Nowitzki, fouled on the play, shot two free throws left-handed (he’s a right hander) and converted one before going to the locker room for stitches to close the laceration.

The Rockets withstood a late rally by Dallas to outlast their neighbors 116-108 in an overtime win.
