Spurs-Timberwolves game delayed due to smoke

Updated: December 4, 2013

Mexico City, Mexico (Sports Network) – An hour before the San Antonio Spurs
and Minnesota Timberwolves were set to tip off from Mexico City Arena, a
generator malfunction occurred and filled the venue with smoke.

Players and fans were immediately evacuated and there is no timetable for a
start time. Staff from each team have begun unloading gear from their
respective locker rooms.

The game, part of the NBA’s Global Games international initiative, is the
first scheduled by the league in Mexico since Dallas and Houston squared off
on Dec. 6, 1997.
