According to the Associated Press, the Verizon Center (the Wizards’ home arena) has acquired a leak in its roof.
Presenting itself via visible water droplets on the court in the second quarter with 11:51 to go, this untimely leakage halted play for a few minutes…players responded by promptly taking part in an impromptu warm-up shot session.
Check out some of the below tweets detailing the action:
The Rockets / Wizards game in a rain delay, not making this up. LOL
