Chicago Bulls forward Mike Dunleavy took one of the most painful charges in recent NBA history Thursday night against the Houston Rockets

Dunleavy stood his ground against hard-charging Rockets forward Chandler Parsons and took an inadvertent elbow to the face.

Here's a photo of the bloody aftermath:

The Bulls' medical staff immediately took Dunleavy back to the locker room for stitches and a checkup, per TNT reporter Rachel Nichols. 

Not only did he come back, but he scored 18 points in the third quarter, finishing with 21 points, seven rebounds and two assists in a 111-87 win.
