    The Kings and 76ers were scheduled to tip-off just after 4pm PT, but the game has been delayed due to condensation on the floor.

    The Philadelphia Flyers played a game at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday night. The 76ers' court was put on top of the ice.

    According to Grant Napear and Jerry Reynolds on the CSN California broadcast, the arena is feels humid and the operations staff in the building have turned on the air conditioning in an attempt to cool the arena down.

    During the delay, Kings All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins grabbed a pair of mops to help the workers dry off the court.

    The 76ers issued the following statement:

    "The Philadelphia 76ers game tonight against the Sacramento Kings has been delayed due to an issue regarding the surface of the court.

    Arena officials are currently working on the surface to ensure that it is suitable for play tonight and that player safety is paramount."
