NEW YORK (Reuters) - The National Basketball Association has postponed two games due to be held on Saturday because of severe weather warnings, the league said.

The matchup between the Boston Celtics and the 76ers in Philadelphia, where up to 45 centimetres (18 inches) of snow are forecast, has been shifted to Sunday at 1900 ET (0000 GMT).

The game between the Utah Jazz and Washington Wizards in the U.S. capital, forecast to get up to 60 centimetres (two feet) of snow, will be rescheduled for a later date.
