Goal malfunction delays Wiz-Rockets

HOUSTON -- The Rockets and Washington Wizards faced a 30-minute delay Monday night for a goal malfunction.

The Wizards' 104-103 win was scoreless when game officials stopped the action 48 seconds into the game because the rim the Rockets were shooting on was crooked.

After attempts to repair the rim failed, officials decided to replace the goal altogether.

It took Toyota Center staff about 20 minutes to replace the goal, and play resumed after an additional five-minute warmup period.
