Pacers plane grounded, bus breaks down, CJ Watson gets stuck in bus bathroom

CJ-Watson-bathroomAfter defeating the Utah Jazz on Wednesday and improving their record to an NBA-best 17-2, the Indiana Pacers had themselves a night from hell. It all started when the team’s flight from Salt Lake City to San Antonio was forced to land in Houston because of nasty weather.

From Houston, the Pacers boarded a bus that was supposed to take them on a three-hour ride to San Antonio. Then the bus broke down. Pacers director of media relations David Benner and radio announcer Mark Boyle documented a lot of the disastrous evening on Twitter.

Fortunately, the bus eventually got back up and running shortly after it stopped. It’s probably for the best that the Pacers’ flight landed in Houston, though I’m not sure how much safer they were riding in a bus given the look of the weather conditions.

And the icing on the cake? Backup guard CJ Watson somehow got himself stuck in the bathroom on the bus during the journey. Roy Hibbert was nice enough to record the embarrassing situation and post it on social media.

The team finally made it to San Antonio at around 10 a.m. Fortunately, the Pacers do not play again until they face the Spurs on Saturday. They’ll need the extra rest.
