Delayed by Toronto traffic

If the Mavs get out of the gates a little slow tonight, it might be because they’re a little bit behind schedule. Because of gridlock here in downtown Toronto, the two busses hauling the team to the arena were late.

I’m on the first bus, which left the hotel at 4:40 p.m. local time. We got to the arena at about 5:20. That’s about 20 minutes late. The second bus – the one with Avery Johnson, Dirk Nowitzki, Josh Howard, Jason Terry and others – didn’t get here until 5:45 or about 75 minutes before tip-off.

The locker room opens up 90 minutes before the game, so there was a little scramble to get ready and start the routines. Maybe next time we’ll take the subway.
