Breaking News: Spurs-Timberwolves game postponed

Soobum Im-US PRESSWIRE

The arena in Mexico City was filled with smoke and had to be evacuated. There will be no game tonight, folks.

There was a "generator malfunction", the arena filled with smoke, and the conditions were deemed unplayable. There is no date yet on when the game will be made up, but it will be in Minnesota. Unofficially, there was talk that Popovich smelled very faintly of gasoline, and it was rumored that he was missing a little of the hair on his right hand.

UPDATE: The official release-
