DeJuan Blair ejected after kicking Tiago Splitter (Video)
DeJuan Blair was a huge force in leading the Dallas Mavericks’ Game 4 comeback against the San Antonio Spurs, but all the momentum he brought to the team and arena was lost when he was ejected with 3:08 left in the game after kicking Tiago Splitter.
Blair was hit with a technical and then ejected by the officials after the play was reviewed. He had 12 points and 11 rebounds in 16 minutes and provided a huge spark for Dallas.
It’s unfortunate that he was ejected when you know he was most likely just reacting in the heat of the moment and not intending to actually hurt Splitter, but the ejection was warranted.
