INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NBA has announced that the Denver Nuggets are among two teams that will play in London on Jan. 12.

The game will be played at The O2 arena between the Nuggets and the Pacers, league officials said Thursday. Denver will be considered the home team and tickets will go on sale at the start of the upcoming season.

It is the first time the Pacers have played a regular-season game overseas, though they have played preseason games in China, the Philippines, Taiwan, Germany and Spain.

The NFL's Indianapolis Colts also will play in London on Oct. 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
