Friday night's Milwaukee Bucks preseason game at the BMO Harris Bradley Center was called off in the middle of the first quarter due to safety concerns because the court surface was proving to be too slippery.
The game against the Toronto Raptors was only the second game held on the Bucks' new home court, which was unveiled with much fanfare last month. Unfortunately, multiple players found themselves slipping and sliding left and right, and with 5:58 remaining in the first quarter, the refs got together and called off the rest of the game before anyone got seriously hurt.
Fans who were in attendance can exchange their tickets for any Bucks home game in the month of November.

The Raptors made a nice splash at the trade deadline last season, acquiring highly talented swingman Rudy Gay. Many debate whether Gay can be considered a franchise player or even if he can be considered an all-star caliber player. I don’t think Toronto expects Gay to be it’s main franchise piece. I don’t think they are building around one player in particular. Rather...
