New York Knicks to face Bucks for NBA Global Games in London

Published Add your comment

The New York Knicks will take on the Milwaukee Bucks in London in another regular season game for next year's NBA Global Games at the 02 Arena.

The NBA has announced, following the success of last year's game between the Atlanta Hawks and the Brooklyn Nets, another New York franchise will take the trip over to the English capital in January 2015.

It's not the first time the Knicks have played in London - they beat the Detroit Pistons at the 02 Arena in January 2013.

But this time they'll face the Bucks on January 15th 2015, which means NBA fans have the chance to potentially see one of the game's most exciting young players go up against Carmelo Anthony.

That's because the Bucks have the number two pick in this year's NBA draft, which means they're almost certainly going to be travelling to London with one of Joel Embiid, Andrew Wiggins or Jabari Parker.

The London edition of the Global Games is the second of a two-parter, as the Houston Rockets face the Minnesota Timberwolves in Mexico City earlier in the season.

"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," said the NBA commissioner Adam Silver.

"These regular season games will bring excitement and incredible competition of our league to more fans in Europe and Latin America."

While London and Mexico City have regular season games, the NBA is touring a number of other teams to Turkey, Germany, Brazil and China for the 2014-15 preseason in October 2014.

Tickets for the game in London will go on sale in October 2014. Fans can register for presale opportunities by signing up to NBA All-Access More information can be found at or @NBAUK.
