MINNEAPOLIS -- After being stuck in Minnesota overnight thanks to the massive snow storm that hit the New York-to-Boston corridor, the New York Knicks arrived home safely on Saturday afternoon, according to a team official.
The Knicks were in Minnesota to play the Timberwolves on Friday night. They initially planned to fly home after the game, but coach Mike Woodson said that flight was postponed. The team opted to stay in Minnesota overnight and to fly to New York on Saturday.
The Knicks are scheduled to play the Los Angeles Clippers at Madison Square Garden on Sunday.
Woodson had said on Friday the team planned to get up on Saturday morning and go over scouting for the Clippers at the hotel before leaving for New York.
The Clippers stayed in Miami overnight after their game Friday night against the Heat.
The Clippers' flight left on time Saturday from Miami. The team's plan was always to stay overnight Friday, practice Saturday, leave for New York around 2 p.m. ET and land at 5 p.m., which is what happened.
