WASHINGTON (AP) — The Verizon Center has sprung a leak, causing a pair of delays in the Washington Wizards' game against the Houston Rockets.

Play was halted for 35 minutes during the second quarter and for 22 minutes at the start of the second half Saturday night because water was dripping onto the court.

The leak was at center court near the scorer's table. Trash cans were placed on top of some towels to catch the water, and several people were in the rafters above the leak, apparently trying to fix the problem.

Heavy rains fell in the region throughout the day.

Players from both teams took warm-up shots during the delays. Dwight Howard playfully blocked shots from a couple of young fans and signed an autograph.
