The colossal snow storm that is currently wreaking havoc on the northeast part of the country has forced the New York Knicks to stay overnight in Minnesota on Friday. The Knicks are stuck in town after playing the Timberwolves earlier in the evening.
The original plan was for the Knicks to fly back to the Big Apple after the game, but those plans were scrapped due to a weather-related flight cancellation. The club will bunk up in Minnesota overnight and attempt to make their way home on Saturday.
On Sunday, the Knicks are slated to play host to Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers at Madison Square Garden.
Head coach Mike Woodson is hoping to go over the scouting report for the Clippers game at the hotel on Saturday morning before departing their current locale.
Weather forecasters are predicting record snowfall will cover the northeast when all is said and done this weekend, which could possibly mean accumulations of up to three feet.
