The Wizards and Raptors had to wait a few minutes later than expected to tip off for Game 1 of their first round playoff series due to a leaky roof at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
Rain delays are more common in baseball, but every once in a while it happens in the NBA. There was freezing rain in Toronto all day on Saturday.
Here are some pictures of the commotion pregame:

The Wizards had a rain delay of their own when hosting the Houston Rockets at the then-Verizon Center back in 2014. It is always surprising, but it does happen in the NBA. Luckily this delay didn't last long.
