76ers to play Celtics in Jan­uary in Lon­don

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

LON­DON — The Bos­ton Celtics and Philadel­phia 76ers will travel to Lon­don in Jan­uary for a game at the O2 arena.

The Six­ers are the home team for the Jan. 11 game.

The game will mark the NBA’s eighth reg­u­lar-sea­son game in Lon­don and the Celtics’ sec­ond game in the cap­i­tal, hav­ing played a pre-sea­son game against the Min­nesota Tim­ber­wolves in 2007.

The 76ers will be play­ing their sec­ond game in the U.K. and first game in Lon­don, hav­ing pre­vi­ously played a pre­sea­son game in Manch­ester against the Ok­la­homa City Thun­der in 2013.

Be­cause the Six­ers are the home team, sea­son-ticket hold­ers with au­to­matic pay­ment plans will not be charged for one game.

Sea­son-ticket hold­ers who have paid in full can re­quest a full re­fund or roll over the charges for fu­ture game pur­chases.

The Six­ers went 28-54 last sea­son and the Celtics had the best record in the East­ern Con­fer­ence at 53-29.
