In the wake of the tragic events at the Boston Marathon Monday, the NBA took an unprecedented step. Tonight's scheduled Pacers-Celtics game was not just postponed, but canceled entirely. With this being the last week of the regular season and both teams locked into playoff positioning, it's a move that makes sense.
TNT was scheduled to air Pacers-Celtics at 8 PM ET as part of a doubleheader. With the cancelation, Turner Sports announced it will air the Raptors-Hawks game from Atlanta, which is the only other game taking place in the association tonight aside from the second half of TNT's twin bill - Blazers at Clippers.
ESPN Radio wll not be replacing the Indiana Pacers at Boston Celtics game with the Toronto Raptors at Atlanta Hawks game however and wlll not broadcast another NBA game untll the NBA Playoffs start on this Saturday the 20th of April!
@awfulannouncing Will they have the TNT announcers or is it a local broadcast being carried by them?
@awfulannouncing Are you seeing what's going on with the EPL and NBC at their event today? That's truly exciting stuff!
