The great thing about sports is if you have a ticket to a game, you never know what could happen.

See a no-hitter in baseball? Watch a quarterback throw for 500 yards? Witness a soccer player score a hat trick?

Anyone at Tuesday night’s Heat-Nets game in Brooklyn got treated to an NBA rain delay.

Yep, it’s true.

The Barclays Center, which opened in 2012, cost $1 billion, but it appears some skimped on the roof.

What to do when there’s a leak in the roof? Get a bucket, right? This was the best they could do at first:

The delay lasted a reported 30 minutes.
