Northeast storm disrupts travel for sports teams
Pro and college teams rearranging travel plans as snowstorm blows through Northeast
Several professional and college sports teams were forced to rearrange their travel plans as a massive storm swept through the Northeast.
The NBA’s New York Knicks were stuck in Minnesota after playing the Timberwolves on Friday night, hoping to try to fly home sometime Saturday. The San Antonio Spurs were also staying overnight in Detroit after seeing their 11-game winning streak end against the Pistons, awaiting word on when they might be able to fly to New York for their game Sunday night at Brooklyn.
Airlines canceled more than 5,300 flights through Saturday, and New York City’s three major airports and Boston’s Logan Airport closed.
The New Jersey Nets planned to take a train home instead of flying from Washington D.C. after losing to the Wizards on Friday night.
