    Wednesday's NBA game between the Indiana Pacers and Chicago Bulls was postponed by a snowstorm that hit the Indianapolis area.

    The Pacers announced the postponement a few hours before the scheduled tip-off. No date had been set for rescheduling the game as of 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.

    The powerful storm system that erupted Christmas Day slammed the Gulf Coast with tornadoes and blanketed nation's midsection with snow. That storm headed for the Northeast on Wednesday, spreading blizzard conditions that slowed holiday travel.

    Indianapolis had seven inches of snow on the ground by 10 a.m. after receiving as much as three inches in a single hour, said John Kwiatkowski, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis. He said the storm's winds were just high enough to classify the storm as a blizzard, making it one of the strongest snowstorms in years to strike central and southern Indiana.
