POSTED: Apr 15, 2013 9:52 PM ET


— The Boston Celtics' home game against the Indiana Pacers scheduled for Tuesday has been canceled because of the Boston Marathon bombings.

The NBA says Monday that the game will not be rescheduled. TNT, which was originally scheduled to air the game, will now show the Hawks host the Raptors at 8 p.m. ET.

The Celtics and Pacers already have 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 Monday.
