The game in Mexico City got postponed due to smoke in the arena, and while there was no contest held on the hardwood, there was still a winner Wednesday night: Twitter. God bless Twitter.

Damn it Boris, I told you not to BBQ ribs in the locker room again.

I swear to Pek, Stern. If Ricky gets smoke inhalation because you want this terrible idea to happen…

Idea: David Stern in a gas mask plays Around the World for two hours instead.

/Cartel hears arena fire news, loads up, heads that way /Hears it's the Spurs /Thinks about Popovich /Decides to just go to dinner instead

Security has three distinct concerns here. 1. The fire 2. The choas of the evacuation. 3. Popovich is going to kill everyone.

Bad news: #Rockets currently trailing Suns 37-51, 1:11 Q2. Good news: Nothing in the arena is currently on fire. #HOUvsPHX

"Well, hold on." *Stern waving away smoke with a paper plate* RT @JMcDonald_SAEN: Game off. Hearing from multiple people

Update: De Colo is reportedly fine, but the Spurs don't plan on returning to the stadium to pick him up.

Any chance the droves of Mexican Timberwolves fans can simply trade their tickets for a home game in Minnesota of their choosing?

David Stern: "NO. NO. WE'RE ALREADY HERE. THIS IS MY LAST YEAR. THEY PLAY. IF THEY DIE, THEY DIE. IT'S JUST THE SPURS AND WOLVES ANYWAY"
