Postponed Timberwolves/Spurs game rescheduled for April 8 in Minnesota

Minnesota and San Antonio were scheduled to play a game Dec. 4 in Mexico City, but then a generator in the building caught fire and filled the arena with smoke.

The game was postponed and a new date has been set, April 8. Now the game will take place in Minnesota, which sucks for the fans in Mexico City who had purchased tickets.

Consider this a minor break for the Timberwolves, who gained a home game out of a neutral site. On the downside, they now have an extra back-to-back as they play the Bulls the next night.

You can bet the NBA will return to Mexico City next season to make up for this.

    This game cancellation was the strangest thing; the very same day a truck containing “extremely dangerous” radioactive materials was stolen in Mexico City. I was certain they canceled the game for fear of a terrorist attack.
