Wolves game in Mexico postponed after smoke enters arena
The NBA's long-awaited return to Mexico went up in smoke on Wednesday when the game between the Minnesota Timberwolves and San Antonio Spurs was postponed due to a generator malfunction.
The Mexico City arena was forced to evacuate 45 minutes before tip-off after a generator sent smoke inside the building.
The contest was scheduled to be the NBA's first regular season game in Mexico since 1997 when Dallas took on Houston.
