DeJuan Blair important for Spurs this season
DeJuan Blair has put together back-to-back 20- point games for the San Antonio Spurs, and in Thursday's loss to the Houston Rockets, he was one of the only starters to log significant minutes, finishing with 22 points and 12 rebounds. That's a good sign. His youth might allow him to play more minutes while the Spurs do what they always do in recent seasons: rest Tim Duncan. Blair's a good player, but since he doesn't block shots, he's really only useful if you need some extra scoring and rebounding help.
