CLEVELAND (AP) - The start of Miami's game against Cleveland has been delayed by a spill on the floor.
LeBron James and members of the Heat were in position near the midcourt line and ready for tipoff when a large pool of liquid and some debris was discovered. As ball boys and arena workers used towels and mops to clean up the area, a referee went to the official scorer's table with something in his hand.
Moments later, the officials sent both teams to their respective locker rooms.
The giant scoreboard over midcourt was lowered, and the Cavs announced there would be at least a 15-minute delay to ``fix the problem.'' It's unclear what caused the spill.
The Heat are trying to win their 24th consecutive game and extend the second-longest winning streak in NBA history.
