Celtics won't play after bombings

11:36 am on 17 April 2013

The Boston Celtics' home NBA basketball game against the Indiana Pacers scheduled for today has been cancelled because of the Boston Marathon bombings.

The NBA says the game won't be rescheduled as the Celtics and Pacers have already clinched playoff berths and are locked into certain seedings in the Eastern Conference.

Two bombs exploded in the packed streets near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Tuesday.
