Tonight's game between the Orlando Magic and New York Knicks was canceled this afternoon after "asbestos-related material" fell to the Madison Square Garden playing surface last night. It is unknown when the historic arena--currently undergoing an $800 million renovation--will reopen. It was the latest indignity inflicted on the moribund Knicks, and one Twitter found most amusing.
