Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers were slated to take on Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns, and the Minnesota Timberwolves in Minneapolis as the two teams fight for the eighth seed in the Western Conference. Unfortunately for the fans hoping to attend the game, ‘Disney on Ice’ might have stopped a potentially good matchup from happening on this night.
The Target Center had an ice sheet put underneath the Court to accommodate a recent Disney on Ice show. The arena elected to keep the ice under the court in preparation for the upcoming Collegiate Hockey National Championship. We’ve seen it before, combine the ice with humid weather and the hardwood courts all of a sudden become insanely slippery and unsafe. As you can imagine, the players weren’t about it.
The NBA released the following statement.
The NBA game scheduled for this evening between the Portland Trail Blazers and Minnesota Timberwolves at Target Center in Minneapolis, MN has been postponed due to unsafe playing conditions on the arena floor.
The game will be rescheduled at a later date.
Take a look at the conditions of the Target Center court.
