Magic to play Raptors in regular-season NBA game in London

LONDON (AP) The NBA says the Orlando Magic and Toronto Raptors will play a regular-season game in London on Jan. 14.

It will be the sixth league game played at the O2 Arena in the British capital. Before 2011, games in London were only exhibitions.

Magic coach Scott Skiles says ''I remember playing in London with the Magic in 1993 and I am sure our current players will relish this unique opportunity.''
