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.
