NBA Finals: Warriors' Game 3 warmups in Boston interrupted

The Golden State Warriors had to pause their Game 3 pregame shoot-around

on Wednesday because the rim at Boston's TD Garden was too high. Seriously.

Per the San Jose Mercury News, Warriors players felt something was off with

the basket during their warmup in the final hours before Game 3's tip.

Sure enough, they were right. Arena staff brought out the latest in measurement

technology to check on their concerns. The rim was indeed a few inches too high.

That stick hanging from the rim is measured at 10 feet.

The gap between the court and bottom of the stick should not be there.

The Mercury News reports that staffers fixed the basket, and the Warriors

were able to resume their warmups after a brief pause.
