(Mexico City) -- Smoke from a malfunctioning generator is the reason the Minnesota Timberwolves and San Antonio Spurs will have to play a make-up game later this year. The two teams were set to play last night in Mexico City when smoke filled the arena about an hour before tip-off. The game was to be part of the NBA's Global Games international initiative and was the first contest in Mexico since Dallas played Houston in that country in 1997. A date for the make-up game hasn't been set.
