London to host Nuggets and Pacers NBA clash

NBA to Stage Regular Season Game in London

LONDON, July 28 (Reuters) - London is to host a regular-season NBA game for the seventh time when Denver Nuggets play Indiana Pacers in January, the National Basketball Association said on Thursday.

The Pacers lost in the first round of last season's playoffs, while the Nuggets failed to make it that far. Neither team has played in Britain before.

"We are thrilled to return for our seventh regular-season game in London," NBA commissioner Adam Silver said at the announcement at its European headquarters in London.

"With almost 25 percent of players in the NBA born outside of the United States, we are seeing first-hand the global growth of our game, which has never been more popular in the U.K.."

The Nuggets-Pacers game, on Jan. 12 2017, will be broadcast live in Europe.
