NBA postpones games due to storm in Texas
The Houston Rockets will have another game postponed as a result of a severe winter storm that has left millions of people without power in Texas. The NBA announced on Friday that Saturday’s Rockets game against the Indiana Pacers was postponed as a result of the storm.
It is the second consecutive postponement for the Rockets, who were due to play the Dallas Mavericks on Friday. The NBA postponed it on Thursday due to extreme weather.
The storm hit the state on Sunday. The Rockets were in the middle of a road trip at the time, and they were ready to head home to play at the Toyota Center on Friday. The Rockets are set to end their three-game stand at home with a game against the Chicago Bulls on Monday. It is not clear if that game will take place after the postponements on Friday and Saturday.
After Monday’s game against the Bulls, the Rockets will return on the road to face the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday. The NBA has not announced when the team will make up postponed games.
Both the Rockets and Mavericks have had games postponed due to storms. The Mavericks were set to play the Atlanta Hawks at the American Airlines Center on Wednesday, but the NBA postponed that game on Tuesday. Friday’s game of the Mavericks against the Rockets, which was already postponed, would take place in Houston.
With that game postponed, the Mavericks are set to return to Dallas for a two-game home fight on Monday and Tuesday. Those games could also be postponed based on the state of the storms.
