The Northeast is about to get buried in snow from a potentially historic blizzard bearing down on the region, one that is expected to dump at least two feet of snow in New York City and it could be much more.
Connecticut already has banned travel after 9 p.m. Monday night and numerous flights have been cancelled out of the region. Other modes of transportation will be shut down as well, and there will be many more cancellations…
Including the Kings’ game at the Knicks scheduled for Madison Square Garden, reports Grant Napear, the Kings’ television play-by-play voice.
Also shut down is the Portland Trail Blazers visiting the Brooklyn Nets, reports Adrian Wojnarowski:
This is the right thing to do. Most people would stay home anyway and the fans trying to get to the arena just put themselves in danger, it’s not worth it.
The games can be re-scheduled for another date. Both Portland and Sacramento likely would have to make another cross-country trip to play the games (or not, in the case of the Kings, because with both New York and Sacramento well out of the playoffs the question is really about how a loss for once side could impact lottery seeding, if it doesn’t it may not be replayed).
Everyone reading this in the Northeast, stay warm and stay safe.
