No. It's literally a meaningless game. It's too late in the year to reschedule, it would have no effect on playoff standings, I don't know about Boston but it doesn't matter as far as Indy's draft position. Boston law enforcement obviously has bigger things to worry about.

Large crowds in boston right now isn't a good idea. Just asking for trouble. I know this is a basketball forum but sports is not a priority.

I personally find it disgusting that they would exploit the tragedy for their own gain. I am appalled. Pathetic.

The entire East playoffs are now tainted.

As long as all this game ticket buyers got refunded, I have no objection.

Considering the circumstances and the fact that both teams have locked up their seedings, I see no problem with this.

No need for the game to be played. Both Indiana and Boston are locked in to their respective playoff positions.

Not only that a basketball game requires a lot of personnel but it's also hard for the Celtics players. Not only that tragedy happened in their city but also they have to worry about their friends and family. Even though most of the Celtics aren't originally from Boston they surely have friends and/or family in the city.

If the game really needs to be played just to have both teams at 82 games then just play it in some basketball facility without any fans or at Indy on Wednesday.

This benefits the old legs of Celtics better than it does Indy.

I really don't understand how people are focusing on who's taking profit of this situation...

This doesnt change anything for any team. Knicks will (or should) rest starters too, so whats with some NY fans here?

Cancellation was a sensible thing to do in these circumstances, there are more important things than a game.

Just play the game, even if its in a practice facility, as long as its an NBA size court.

I don't see why it has to be a big deal.
