Leaky roof at Barclays Center causes ‘rain delay’ at Nets game (Video)

A leak in the roof of the Barclays Center caused a “rain delay” during the second quarter of Tuesday night’s Brooklyn Nets game against the visiting Miami Heat.
Barclays Center PA announcement, “The roof is leaking. We hope to get it resolved and we look to be underway shortly”— Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) December 17, 2014
You wouldn’t expect rain to cause a delay in an NBA game that is played indoors, but it’s especially embarrassing for the Nets considering that they play in an arena that is less than three years old.Nets staffers scrambled to protect the court with buckets to catch the raindrops while front office executives assessed the situation to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.

Nets executive Fred Mangione is now also on the scene. No indication yet of how long this delay will be.

Heat-Nets Game Delayed Due to Leaky Roof at Barclays Center

That’s not ideal.

The Miami Heat came to Barclays Center to take on the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday. The Heat took an early 24-21 lead in the first quarter, but the game was delayed due to a leaky roof.

Hopefully that’s not their only plan.

Nets fan with prosthetic leg who was escorted from game falls to death: Report

The Brooklyn Nets superfan who had to be carried out from a game amid claims that he attacked another spectator with his prosthetic leg earlier this month, has died. Jeffrey Vanchiro was killed after falling from a window on the second floor of his father’s house in Queens, on Saturday night. He sustained severe brain damage and a fractured spinal cord in the fall. Vanchiro, a former professional poker player also known as Jeffrey Gamblero, allegedly jumped from the building in a disorientated state. The colorful Vanchiro had become known to fellow Nets fans for his loud cheers, even louder outfits and dancing during games. But he became a viral video folk hero when he was ejected from the Nets-Knicks game at Madison Square Garden (video below) on December 2. Vanchiro’s fiance said that he had behaved erratically since being ejected from the game. “After that, he was a completely different person,’”Kristi Evans told The New York Times. “He was paranoid.

Rio Grande Valley Vipers vs. Westchester Knicks Game Recap

Westchester Knicks

The Westchester Knicks hosted the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in White Plains, NY, on Friday night in what would be a thrilling contest. Westchester pulled off a hard-fought one-point victory (99-98).
Plagued by turnovers and missed free throws, the Knicks spent most of the contest playing catch-up, falling behind by as much as 12 points.

Head coach Kevin Whitted expressed concern over the turnovers, but acknowledged that growth will be a process with his young team.
Andre Barrett led the Westchester Knicks with 21 points and five assists, while Orlando Sanchez contributed 20 points of his own. Thanasis Antetokounmpo had 16 points, eight rebounds and three blocked shots.
