NEW YORK — The Indiana Pacers will play the Pelicans in New Orleans on March 21, a rescheduled game stemming from a Feb. 7 postponement because of a leaky roof.

The NBA announced the new date Thursday.

The leak happened near the foul line, causing a two-hour delay at the Smoothie King Center. The teams were concerned about the risk of injury on the damp floor.
