Rockets Travel by Ferry to Face Warriors

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Houston Rockets traveled to their game by boat.

The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge is temporarily closed down for emergency repairs after a cable on the bridge's upper deck snapped Tuesday, leaving the Rockets with two options to get to Oracle Arena: an early bus ride on a longer, alternate route or a quick and scenic ferry trip with the public.

Houston is staying in San Francisco and had to get to the East Bay for Wednesday night's season opener against the Golden State Warriors.

This is a first as far as the Warriors can remember for a visiting team to get to a game.
