Timberwolves-Spurs Game Postponed

Due to smoke in the arena in Mexico City, the scheduled game between the Wolves and Spurs has been postponed.

Well, that ended badly.

What always seemed like a bad idea--a one off game on a Wednesday night in Mexico City-- turned out even worse then expected tonight when the game had to be postponed due to smoke in the arena.

Whether due to an escalator fire or a faulty generator--the two reported causes, the Mexico City Arena was rendered unusable.

Presumably the game will be rescheduled for Target Center as it was being counted as a Wolves home game. No word on when that might happen.

The Wolves will head back to Minneapolis where they will face the Heat on Friday night.

We'll update if/as needed.
