Saturday's Celtics-76ers game moved to Sunday due to weather

With a major blizzard threatening travel across much of the Mid-Atlantic region this weekend, the NBA on Friday announced the postponement of two Saturday games, including the Celtics' matchup with the 76ers in Philadelphia. The C's would have had to travel to Philly after tonight's home game against the Chicago Bulls.

Instead, Boston will have Saturday off and then play back-to-back games in Philadelphia on Sunday night and Washington on Monday. The nation's capital is expected to be hit hard, and Saturday's Wizards-Jazz game has also been postponed.

Sunday's will be the third meeting between the Celtics and Sixers this season, with Boston winning home games on opening night and on Thanksgiving weekend.
