The Spurs and T-Wolves were originally due to play a game in Mexico City on December 4, which was postponed on account of a fire in the arena. The rematch will be on April 8, making it one of the last games of the regular season.
Spurs-T'Wolves game postponed
The arena in Mexico City was filled with smoke and had to be evacuated. There will be no game tonight, folks.
While the original matchup south of the border was technically a "home game" for Minnesota, this game will be played in the decidedly more Minnesota-like surrounds of Minneapolis.
Here's the official press release from Spurs.com.
