The Pacers took warmup jumpers in the dark because the Heat's lights went out

The start of the Pacers-Heat game on Monday night was delayed because after pre-game intros in Miami, the lights never came back on.

Players actually began to shoot baskets in the dark in order to try and stay warm before tip off.

About one minute after this tweet, officials announced that the lights would take about 15-20 minutes to turn back on and players were sent to the locker rooms. It's not quite Beyonce Super Bowl dark, but it's bad. Here's to hoping this gets sorted out soon for both teams. The game finally tipped off around 8:07pm, about 20 minutes late.
