Tickets go on sale for NBA games in London

Tickets have gone on sale for the first regular-season NBA games

in Europe.

The New Jersey Nets and Toronto Raptors will play a pair of

week of activities across Britain, including basketball clinics and

3-on-3 competitions.

games to London is excited about playing in one of the world’s

great cities.”

The NBA has been playing preseason games in London for several

years. The Los Angeles Lakers will face the Minnesota Timberwolves
