The outcome of the Pacers-Celtics game "would make no difference" in Eastern Conference playoff standings. The NBA "has never had a situation in which any team played fewer than 82 games" in a full regular season since adopting that schedule in '67 (USA TODAY, 4/16). Due to the game's cancellation, TNT will televise Raptors-Hawks in its place at 8:00pm ET tonight (Turner Sports).
The announcement of ESPN's anticipated SEC Network agreement has been postponed indefinitely in the wake of the explosions and will be rescheduled in the coming weeks (THE DAILY). Also, a planned announcement set for today on the Int'l Champions Cup soccer tournament "will now take place later this week," according to a tweet from SI's Grant Wahl (TWITTER.com, 4/16).
