NBA team's trip turns into travel nightmare Published: December 6, 2013

The Indiana Pacers don’t play the San Antonio Spurs until Saturday, which leaves the Spurs plenty of time to rest up following the travel and eventual postponement of their hoped-for game against Minnesota in Mexico City on Wednesday, according to Yahoo Sports.

But that game was shuttered because of smoke caused from a misfiring generator, the sort of haze that co-incidentally made the Pacers flight from Salt Lake City to San Antonio dodgy enough that the airplane’s pilots thought it best to land a few hours outside of San Antonio.

In the overnight Texas fog, the Pacers boarded a bus to drive them the rest of the way to their hotel. What followed, through the tweets of Pacers director of media relations David Benner and radio play by play man Mark Boyle, was a bit of a trying journey, Yahoo Sports reports.
