Tonight’s Magic-Knicks Game Postponed

Someone remind me to ask Marcin Gortat for some stock tips. There might have been a reason he thought New York smelled so funny. And it might have saved us all.

Orlando’s game in New York was postponed Tuesday after debris fell on the floor after standard maintenance of material, including asbestos-related material, in the attic of Madison Square Garden. This marks the second game canceled because of arena problems after the Magic’s preseason game against the Heat was canceled because the cleaning crew at St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa used an improper cleaning formula.

According to a press release from the Knicks: “Out of an abundance of caution, and after consulting the NBA, we are postponing tonight’s Knicks v. Magic game. We will be working with the city and independent experts, ATC Associates and GCI Environmental Advisory, to evaluate and determine the most appropriate course of action. As the safety of our customers and employees are our top priority, we will not reopen the Garden until we are absolutely assured the Arena is safe.”

No makeup date has been announced.

Orlando returns to action tomorrow night at Amway Center against Minnesota. Until then, enjoy the rain delay video above.
