DeJuan Blair good so far for Mavs
 
The Mavs have been appreciative of the yeoman's work Blair has turned in off the bench. And they know he came to Dallas with a chip on his shoulder and trying to prove that he got a raw deal in San Antonio.

"I know he didn’t play that much last year,'' coach Rick Carlisle said. "Any time you go to a new team and there’s an opportunity to get minutes and be a part of something, it’s an important thing.

They missed out on Dwight Howard, but the Dallas Mavericks believe they picked up a couple of big hits when they landed centers Samuel Dalembert and DeJuan Blair last summer.

Granted, Dalembert and Blair don’t have Howard’s pizzazz and headline cachet. But the duo have combined to give the Mavs a fresh and effective look inside the paint.

“Dalembert has given us a very solid rim presence and he’s rebounded well,” coach Rick Carlisle said. “Blair has given us a physical presence and he’s rebounded well.
