It was something of a bizarre scene at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans on Wednesday night for the Pelicans’ home game against the Pacers. Prior to tip-off, arena officials announced that the start time would be delayed due to a leaky roof that was dripping moisture onto the court.
Arena personnel tried to mop up the court and even dispatched a team to the rafters to set up a tarp to try and catch the water that was leaking into the building. Sadly for them, their efforts were to no avail.
After a lengthy delay, the organization announced via its Twitter account that the NBA decided the game would be postponed until a later date and that fans would be given refunds on their tickets.
