SPURS-TWOLVES GAME IN MEXICO CANCELLED BY SMOKE

0

MEXICO CITY: The NBA cancelled a rare game in Mexico City between the San Antonio Spurs and Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) after smoke from a generator malfunction engulfed the arena, forcing players to evacuate. Players abandoned their warm-up and exited the 22,000-capacity Arena Ciudad de Mexico about an hour before tip-off as smoke entered the facility. The game, which would have given Mexicans a rare chance to see big-name NBA players such as Spurs guard Tony Parker and regional star Manu Ginobili of Argentina, will now take place in Minnesota, the NBA said.
