Pacers safe in Boston after bomb attack at marathon

April 15, 2013

The Indiana Pacers, in Boston preparing for their Tuesday night game with the NBA's Celtics, were all safe and accounted for Monday afternoon after two explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

"We have talked to the team and everyone in the travel party has been accounted for," said a short news release on the Pacers website. "Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected in Boston."

The game has been canceled.

Two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, killing two people, injuring 23 others and sending authorities rushing to aid wounded spectators. A senior U.S. intelligence official said two other explosive devices were found nearby.

There was no immediate word on the motive or who may have launched the attack. Some 27,000 runners took part in the 26.2-mile race, one of the world's premier marathons.
