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 from the arena and team
personnel began loading gear into each team’s respective bus soon thereafter.

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.
