              === Spurs-Timberwolves game delayed due to smoke ===
 
 Mexico  City,  Mexico (Sports Network) -  An hour before the San Antonio Spurs
 and  Minnesota Timberwolves  were set  to tip  off from  Mexico City  Arena, a
 generator malfunction occurred and filled the venue with smoke.
 
 Players  and  fans were immediately evacuated  and there is no timetable for a
 start  time.  Staff from  each  team  have  begun  unloading gear  from  their
 respective locker rooms.
 
 The  game,  part of  the NBA's  Global Games  international initiative, is the
 first  scheduled by  the league in Mexico since Dallas and Houston squared off
 on Dec. 6, 1997.
