Pop doesn’t give a true explanation for Blair’s demotion

DeJuan Blair started 62 of the Spurs 66 regular-season games, but hasn’t seen much playing time in the playoffs.

He has failed to play in either game in the Oklahoma City series after being benched for the final two games of the sweep over the Clippers.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich didn’t give an explanation why Blair has been benched, but said he’s pleased with his attitude.

“He’s working hard to be ready if called upon and that’s a great thing,” Popovich said. “He’s got great character and he’s ready to go if I call upon him.”
