After 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.
6:47 AM. Bus just broke down in the middle of nowhere on the way to San Antonio. Good times.

Made it to What-a-burger and greeted by this. Now now how Griswold's felt. Sorry, Moose says park closed. pic.twitter.com/UF5LA3uS7h

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.
