The National Basketball Association (NBA) today announced that Mexico and the United Kingdom will host regular-season games as part of its expanded NBA Global Games schedule for the 2014-15 season.

The Houston Rockets and Minnesota Timberwolves will play at the Mexico City Arena on Nov. 12, as part of NBA Global Games Mexico City 2014. NBA Global Games London 2015 will feature a game between the Milwaukee Bucks and New York Knicks at The O2 on Jan. 15.

The two regular-season games will follow the NBA Global Games preseason games in October that will feature five teams -- the Brooklyn Nets, Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, Sacramento Kings, and San Antonio Spurs -- playing a series of games in Brazil, China, Germany, and Turkey.

As part of the NBA's effort to connect with its fans globally, NBA Global Games 2014-15 now includes a total of nine NBA teams playing seven regular-season and preseason games in seven cities in six countries.
