The headline is not a typo. Tonight's game between the Brooklyn Nets and Miami Heat was delayed due to a leak in the roof of the Barclays Center for approximately 31 minutes with 1:47 remaining in the first quarter.
Per a conversation with about 20 members of the media, we believe it to be the first ever rain delay in an NBA game. Please enjoy the three photos, featuring the progression of how the leak was contained before play resumed.
Dave Roach joined us this week for our monthly look at Fordham athletics, the Roach Report. The report covered championships for football and men's soccer, and looks to the future for men's and women's basketball.

Leading 30-23 at halftime, the Fordham Rams did not look back as they went on to beat the Siena Saints 69-67.

The Fordham Rams edged out the Siena Saints 69-67 on Monday evening at the Rose Hill Gym.
Coming off losses to UMass-Lowell and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, the Rams needed a win desperately. Many did not think they had a chance against a Siena team that had won its previous two road contests. Fordham proved the nay-sayers wrong, and an emphatic block by freshman Eric Paschall sealed the win in the final seconds.
