After the San Antonio Spurs fell to the Detroit Pistons last night, they got more bad news — there was a storm heading to the northeast and they weren't going to make their early planned arrival.
"We can't get there tonight – we know that," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "So we're going to stay here tonight and try to get there (Saturday). Hopefully, we will be able to get there, but at this point, we don't know." (CharlotteObserver.com)
The Brooklyn Nets, San Antonio's opponents on Sunday, had a little better luck on their side as they had the option of going home on train when thousands of flights were cancelled due to the storm. The Spurs were hoping to get there after the game with a day of rest, but the team had to settle for a Saturday morning flight to New York. Spurs' Spanish Radio voice Paul Castro tweeted that all things were a go.
On our way to the airport. Seems, like we will get to NYC today. We will get to our hotel by dog sleigh. Thanks NEMO! (@PaulCastroNBA)
Hopefully the Spurs and Castro, got enough rest for the big game tomorrow when the Spurs play the Nets 8pm EST.
