This is the second time this season that AAC has had a leak during a game.
Second time this season the @AACenter roof has sprung a leak. First time it happened was March 21, delaying the start of Mavs-Minnesota by about 15 minutes. This leak is much closer to the court, unfortunately, the corner of the court next to the Warriors' bench.
