Leaky roof forces Pacers-Pelicans postponement

The Times-Picayune

Hopefully the Pacers (30-25) at least enjoyed Bourbon Street on Wednesday night. "We just felt as coaches - and they got the GMs and I'm sure they got the owners involved - that the condition is not ready for these guys to play".

The game scheduled for tonight between the New Orleans Pelicans and the Indiana Pacers has been postponed by the National Basketball Association due to a leak in the roof at the Smoothie King Center.

The game is expected to be rescheduled, with the makeup date announced at a later time.

Arena staff had been working to clear the court of water and coaches Alvin Gentry and McMillan had come out to look at the situation with officials, but players never took the court. They asked the Pacers if they wanted to catch a parade and they had other dance-offs. Bad weather forced a game against the Cavaliers on January 24 to be pushed back until March, but the Pacers won 127-104.

Hazard: Champions League has affected Chelsea's Prem title defence
Chelsea is also without two of its key players from last season, Diego Costa having returned to Atletico Madrid and Nemanja Matic being sold to Manchester United, while club icon John Terry departed.

A leak in the building's roof allowed rainwater to seep onto the court, and a delay began shortly before the scheduled tipoff.

Neither team ever warmed up.

In return, IN received guard Victor Oladipo, who made the All-Star team himself thanks to averages of 24 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.9 steals over 34.4 minutes per game. We would've probably been a mess if we had gone out there anyway.

It's understandable as both teams are dealing with injuries this season in games played under dry conditions.
