The OKC PA announcer repeatedly told the crowd they are “safe” while asking fans to calmly exit the arena.
Thunder PA: The game tonight has been postponed. You're all safe. Please take your time and leave the arena in an orderly manner. You're all safe.— Nate Duncan (@NateDuncanNBA) March 12, 2020
We have a weird scene in Oklahoma City. The players and refs have left the court and the game is being delayed. It’s unclear what the next course of action will be although it seems possible the game gets canceled. It’s worth noting that Rudy Gobert was ruled out before the game with an illness, which comes amidst concerns around sporting events and the coronavirus.
