VIDEO: DeJuan Blair ejected for kicking Tiago Splitter
DeJuan Blair kicked Tiago Splitter in the head and got ejected for it.
You know it was a wild playoff game when DeJuan Blair's ejection may have been the turning point.
With 3:08 remaining in the fourth and the Mavericks leading Game 4 against the Spurs by a point, Blair tripped Tiago Splitter and then appeared to kick his legs out, making contact with Splitter's head.
After a review, Blair was ejected and Splitter went to the line for three free throws (technical and two common foul free throws). Splitter hit all three, which resulted in the Spurs going back ahead by two.
Blair was a major influence in the fourth, registering a double-double (12 points and 11 rebounds) in just 16 minutes. But his foul out brought Samuel Dalembert back on the floor, who missed two critical free throws a couple minutes later.
The Spurs went on to survive an important Game 4, 93-89, to even the series up 2-2.
