SAN DIEGO –- With the floor slippery in too many places, too many times, game officials along with Warriors coach Luke Walton and Lakers coach Byron Scott agreed to halt their preseason game in the third quarter Saturday night.

The game was called with 2:16 remaining in the third quarter and the Lakers holding an 85-70 lead.

On no fewer than seven occasions, players were seen slipping and sliding on the floor. In one notable first-half instance, Warriors guard Steph Curry lost his footing and recovered to drain a three-pointer over Jordan Clarkson.

The decision was not popular with the crowd at Valley View Casino Center, but given the conditions, it seemed to be the responsible choice. 

The arena typically plays host to the San Diego Gulls, an AHL ice hockey team affiliated with the NHL's Anaheim Ducks. 

Shortly after the game, the Lakers announced that all fans in attendance would be eligible to receive a full refund.
