Source: Warriors stranded in Indianapolis after plane mechanical problem
The Warriors were supposed to make the two-hour flight from Indianapolis, Indiana to New York on Monday night after their 102-100 win over the Indiana Pacers, but those plans have changed.
Sources have confirmed to NBC Sports Bay Area’s Monte Poole and Kendra Andrews that the Warriors will be staying in Indianapolis overnight due to mechanical issues with their plane.
The Warriors are now scheduled to leave Indianapolis at 10 a.m. ET and arrive in New York around 12 p.m. ET with a kick-off against the New York Knicks scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET.
Athletic’s Anthony Slater and Marcus Thompson II first announced that the Warriors were stranded in Indianapolis overnight.
Slater reported that the Warriors tried to find another plane in Indianapolis but were unsuccessful in their search.
The Warriors game against the Knicks is set to be a historic night for the NBA as Steph Curry needs two 3 points to become the all-time career leader, overtaking Ray Allen, who currently holds the record at 2,973.
