Game 1 between the Toronto Raptors and the Boston Celtics on Thursday could be postponed, per A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston.

All of Wednesday’s games were postponed in the wake of the Jacob Blake shooting in Wisconsin.

The Raptors and Celtics were scheduled to tip off their Eastern Conference semifinal series on Thursday.

“No decision has been made on the Celtics vs Raptors Game 1, but source inside the Orlando Bubble says both sides are “leaning” towards not playing Game 1,” Blakely reports.

Both teams swept their respective series in the opening round of the playoffs.
