09:38 AM ET 10.26 | A slick new floor suddenly turned into a slip-and-slide for the Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors in a preseason game Friday. Players on both teams repeatedly slipped on the new hardwood court, which was being used for just the third time. And referee Danny Crawford and his crew quickly decided to cancel the annual MACC Fund Game in the first quarter, citing safety concerns. Bucks executive vice president of business operations John Steinmiller said the franchise will have a 48-hour period "to try to identify the situation (with the current floor) and correct it or (see) if we have to take other steps." Steinmiller said the cause of the problem has not been determined.
