The Denver Nuggets will play the Indiana Pacers at London's O2 Arena in the seventh regular-season NBA game to be played in the United Kingdom.

The 12 January fixture is the first time either side has played overseas during the regular season.

Indiana lost in the first round of the play-offs last season, while the Nuggets failed to make it out of the Western Conference.

The Toronto Raptors beat Orlando Magic 106-103 in January at the O2.

The first regular-season game to be staged in the UK was the New Jersey Nets' 116-103 success over the Raptors in March 2011.
