Celtics-Pacers Game Cancelled for Tuesday Night


The NBA has just announced the decision to cancel the Celtics-Pacers game Tuesday night in TD Garden due to the tragic bombings today at The Boston Marathon. Given the fact both teams are locked into the 7th and 3rd seeds respectively, the game will not be made up, and both teams will conclude the regular season playing 81 games.

The Celtics will play their final game of the season as scheduled, Wednesday night in Toronto, against the Raptors. Based on today’s events, the cancellation was definitely the right decision by the NBA and I applaud them for it.

On a personal level, since we’ve had readers reach out to us, I want to say the CelticsHub crew based in Boston (myself and Brendan) is safe. I was out watching the Boston Marathon today, like many residents in the city of Boston, and I was a couple miles from the finish line when this tragedy unfolded. Speaking as a lifelong resident of the Boston area, the outpouring of support today from everyone has been incredible and appreciated on such an awful day. The work done by first responders everywhere you look in Boston has been tremendous as well.

My thoughts and prayers continue to be with the thousands of people directly affected by this horrendous incident, and the same goes for the rest of the crew here at CH.

    not often that I applaud the NBA for its decisions, but I think they made the right call on this one. I look forward to the first game in Boston though. returning to normal operations is the best way to make it clear that the bastards behind this have failed in truly disrupting and damaging the lives of the good people of boston.

    Glad to hear that everyone at CH is safe and well.

    Lastly, let's not focus on the pain and suffering caused, but rather let's focus on the ubiquitous heroism and bravery present in all great tragedies. I think this post says it better than I can http://imgur.com/gallery/yiBHDeD

    No basketball comments today. It wouldn't seem right

    Definitely the right move by the NBA during this tragic day. Glad you all at CH are okay, our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by this cowardly act.

    Many people down here in Georgia are deeply saddened by today’s attack. Boston is one of our country’s national gems and like my boss at work said today, “an attack on one is an attack on us all”

    Pacers fan here.

    When I saw the news, I figured Tuesday’s Pacers-Celtics game would be cancelled because it’s a meaningless one, and I’m glad it was.

    I hope the Celtics win on Wednesday and wish them luck against the Knicks.

    Grateful to hear everyone at the Hub is safe and my heart and best wishes go out to everyone in Boston.
