Tyreke Evans gets stuck in an elevator before Suns-Pelicans
Pelicans guard almost missed tipoff because he's stuck in an elevator.
Update 2: He made it!
Tyreke Evans arrived at the arena 15 minutes ago and he will start— Bryan Gibberman (@GibbermanAZ) March 1, 2014
Update: Yup, he's stuck.
When someone asks me why I love the NBA, I tell them it's because of stuff like this, that just doesn't seem to happen in other sports. With Jrue Holiday out for the season with surgery on a stress fracture, Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans was set to get the start Friday night vs. Phoenix.
Just one problem.

I can see the box score now:
DNP-Suspended. Literally suspended by cables.
DNP-Lever & Pulley system
DNP- Left hanging

We'll see if Evans makes it for tip.
Boston is better on defense without Thomas, but it obviously missed him in the second half...
The Cavs are up 3-1, in part thanks to Irving's astonishing performance.
Maybe the best player of all-time has his best season, and he's not even in the discussion...
Cleveland took a 3-1 lead on Boston and will look to close it out Thursday
Boston had a 16-point lead at one point
