Kidd collided with Indiana guard and Brooklyn product Lance Stephenson. It appeared that Stephenson's tooth hit the side of Kidd's head, resulting in a sizeable cut.

Kidd initially wore a headband to cover the blood and returned to the court to shoot three free-throws. He then left the court to receive the stitches.

The 39-year-old returned to the floor in the second quarter, wearing the headband over the gash.
