Magic, Bulls, Jazz to Play Games South of the Border
The NBA announced Tuesday that a pair of December regular-season games will be played in Mexico City. In both games, the Orlando Magic will be considered the home team, hosting the Chicago Bulls on Dec. 13, and the Utah Jazz on Dec. 15.
For the 3rd consecutive year, the NBA Mexico City Games will be held at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico.
“Returning to Mexico City for two regular-season games this season reinforces our commitment to growing basketball in Mexico and Latin America,” said commissioner Adam Silver. ” NBA teams have been playing in Mexico for more than 25 years, and the Bulls, Jazz and Magic organizations are excited to continue the tradition of bringing the live game experience to our passionate Mexican fans.”
The games will be broadcast live on ESPN and on NBA League Pass International.
