The air conditioning unit that broke inside the AT&T Center during Game 1 of the NBA Finals that turned the arena into an oven has apparently been fixed. After a malfunction caused temps to rise to the 90s in Game 1, things should be much cooler for Game 2 and the Heat will have regular conditions under which to play.
According to the Washington Post, the air conditioning inside the AT&T Center has been fixed and temps should remain at a more tolerant level in Game 2.
“The electrical failure that caused the AC system outage during Game 1 of the NBA Finals has been repaired. The AC system has been tested, is fully operational and will continue to be monitored,” the statement released by the team said.
If they don’t then something might be up as there is no way that a massive air conditioning unit can fail two games in a row on accident when it hasn’t failed in what seems like the entire history of the arena.
There’s no conspiracy theory here, but should the A/C fail twice, there may be something more than meets the eye to all of this. Keep your tinfoil hats tucked away for now, as the focus should be on the game and not the A/C, but with the Spurs apparently you never know.
