Heat to check on arena after Mexico City earthquake

NBA, Miami Heat

The Miami Heat aren't sure if they are going to Mexico City for a game this season.

The Heat are scheduled to play the Brooklyn Nets on Dec. 9 in Mexico City, a city where at least 186 people died in a massive earthquake last week. Rescuers were still digging in dangerous piles of rubble Monday, desperately seeking any more survivors.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says the team sent personnel to Mexico City to see the arena before the quake, and will send people back to Mexico City in the coming weeks.

"Our hearts go out to the folks in Mexico City,'' Spoelstra said. "It's horrific to see that.''

Across Mexico, at least 324 people died in the quake. The NBA has said that, for now at least, the game remains as scheduled.
