MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The game between the San Antonio Spurs and Minnesota Timberwolves that was postponed in Mexico City due to smoky conditions has now been rescheduled.

On Monday, the NBA announced the Timberwolves will now take on the Spurs at the Target Center on April 8 at 7 p.m.

In early December, the Mexico City arena was evacuated about 45 minutes before the scheduled 9:30 p.m. EST tipoff when a generator malfunction outside the arena sent smoke pouring into the building, according to NBA spokeswoman Sharon Lima.

Mexico City Police said in a statement there was a fire in the generator room on the fourth floor of the modern glass-clad arena that opened in 2012.

“What happened was provoked by a short circuit in the room of generators,” the statement said in Spanish.

About 15 minutes after the scheduled start, the Spurs bus pulled away from the building. The Timberwolves bus followed soon after.
