The Mets weren’t the only local team dealing with rain issues Sunday.
The Knicks’ game against the Raptors was delayed for several minutes with 3:58 remaining in the third quarter after water was dripping from the ceiling at Madison Square Garden.
A team spokesman said there was a “small drip from the rain” coming from the ceiling, but it was “fixed.”
Players on both teams were shown looking up at the ceiling during the 14-minute delay while a courtside staffer mopped up the water with a towel.
After play resumed, the staffer wiped up the area inside the key in front of the Knicks’ defensive basket after each Toronto possession.
A few hours earlier, the Mets suspended their game against the Marlins following a 2-hour, 10-minute rain delay.
The teams, much to the displeasure of Mets starting pitcher Marcus Stroman, attempted to play through the rain for seven minutes before it ultimately was called off.
