DeJuan Blair delivers for Mavs

SACRAMENTO – Coach Rick Carlisle insisted Friday night that DeJuan Blair wasn’t a forgotten man in the Mavericks’ rotation. Two days later, Blair came up big. Blair banged for six points and nine rebounds and drew a key charge in 17 minutes during Sunday’s 93-91 win over the Sacramento Kings. It was the most playing time in almost a month for Blair, who got double-digit minutes only twice in the previous 11 games. He didn’t take off his warmups in two of those games, including Friday night’s win over the Los Angeles Lakers.
