Mexico City, London to host regular-season games

 

The Sports Network

New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The NBA announced Thursday that regular- season games will be played in Mexico City and London during the 2014-15 campaign.

The Houston Rockets are scheduled to play the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Mexico City Arena on Nov. 12, while the Milwaukee Bucks and New York Knicks will meet at London's The O2 on Jan. 15.

"While London and Mexico City each have their own unique culture, they both have rich sports traditions and share a great passion for the NBA," NBA commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement. "These regular-season games will bring the excitement and incredible competition of our league to more fans in Europe and Latin America."

The Timberwolves were supposed to play the San Antonio Spurs at the Mexico City Arena last Dec. 4, but the game was postponed because a generator malfunction filled the venue with smoke.

The league previously announced that preseason games will be held in Brazil, China, Germany and Turkey.
