APR 29, 2014 7:56p ET
Blair and Splitter got tangled up and fell to the court in the fourth quarter of San Antonio's 93-89 victory in Dallas on Monday night. After the whistle blew, signaling a foul on Blair, he kicked his former teammate with his left foot.
After Game 4, Splitter said he thought it was an accident when it happened but changed his mind when he saw the replay. Blair said it was unintentional and that he was just reacting to the call.
Blair, who is averaging 5.5 points and 4.5 rebounds in the postseason, will sit out Wednesday night's game in San Antonio. The series is tied 2-all.
