(CNN) -- The NBA game in Mexico City between the San Antonio Spurs and the Minnesota Timberwolves was postponed Wednesday night after smoke filled the arena.

The game will be rescheduled on a date to be determined and played in Minneapolis, the NBA said in a written statement.

The league said a generator malfunction caused smoke inside Mexico City Arena.

This was to have been the second time an NBA regular season game was played in Mexico.
