Warriors delayed in transit to Houston for Game 3, cancel practice

HOUSTON -- The Golden State Warriors had a long journey to the site of Game 3 of the Western Conference finals.

The Warriors' chartered flight was delayed roughly three hours out of Oakland on Friday due to mechanical problems, and the team arrived in Houston at 10 p.m. local time, about 6 1/2 hours later than planned.

The Warriors had to cancel a late-afternoon practice and media availability.

Game 3 is Saturday night at the Toyota Center. The Warriors lead the best-of-seven series 2-0.
