The headline is not a typo. Tonight's game between the Brooklyn Nets and Miami Heat was delayed due to a leak in the roof of the Barclays Center for approximately 31 minutes with 1:47 remaining in the first quarter.
Per a conversation with about 20 members of the media, we believe it to be the first ever rain delay in an NBA game. Please enjoy the three photos, featuring the progression of how the leak was contained before play resumed.

The Knicks ended their last preseason home game in dramatic fashion as they knocked off the Washington Wizards 103-100. Wednesday’s win moves the Knicks up to 3-3 in the preseason, a plausible campaign given their new triangle offense that they plan to utilize this season.
On the tail end of a back-to-back and in what may be one of the most grueling preseason’s in franchise history, the Brooklyn Nets managed to find a way to defeat the Philadelphia 76ers, 99-88.
While preseason basketball can only be so interesting, most of the basketball world is curious to see what the New York Knicks new offense will look like under Phil Jackson and head coach Derek Fisher’s triangle system. What was the answer we got on Monday? Not very good so far.
