Leaking roof at Barclays Center causes delay in Nets-Heat game

Wednesday December 17th, 2014

A leaky roof caused a stoppage in play during Tuesday night's game between the Brooklyn Nets and Miami Heat at Barclays Center.

The delay occurred late in the first quarter, with Miami holding a three-point lead. Drops of water could be seen dripping from the ceiling as officials looked on. A trash can was then placed under the leak.

Once the floor was deemed playable, teams had three minutes to warm up again. Play resumed after 29 minutes. The arena opened in September 2012.
