BOSTON (WISH) - The Pacers spent the day in Boston Monday prior to their date with the Celtics. Team officials said this afternoon that everyone, including the team and the rest of the party, is accounted for.
Sam Young and a teammate spent part of the day down at the marathon, according to Twitter:

One of the team's public relations representatives, David Benner, also spent part of the day at the race. He said he felt very safe. He only learned of the explosion after he got back to the hotel by turning on the television.
"There was a lot of people there, a lot of participants and their families, so the atmosphere was very good. You didn't even think of anything like this," Benner said.
Miami coach Erik Spoelstra will wait to decide whether to play guard Dwyane Wade against the Pacers on Tuesday night.
A Lawrence apartment building has added $1,000 to a reward after a person was shot and killed there last week.
On Tuesday, Indianapolis Police Chief Rick Hite will promote 23 officers. Three sergeants will be elevated to the rank of lieutenant. Twenty patrol officers will be promoted to the rank of sergeant.
