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. Tickets for the NBA London Game 2018 game go on sale in October.

This will mark the NBA’s eighth regular-season game in London. The Celtics played a preseason contest there against the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2007.

Boston’s only other regular-season matchup held outside the United States or Canada came Dec. 3, 2015 against the Sacramento Kings in Mexico City.

“The Boston Celtics have enjoyed a loyal global following for decades, and we welcome the opportunity to connect again with our international fans,” said Rich Gotham, the Celtics’ team president. “We’re happy to be returning to London to play our rivals the 76ers in front of London’s fans, and look forward to the exciting atmosphere and experience that this event will offer.”

The 76ers will be playing their second game in the UK and first in London, previously playing 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 won’t 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.

“I look forward to coming back to London with the Sixers after visiting for the first time this summer,” said 76ers center Joel Embiid. “We are a young, hungry team and will be sure to give the fans an exciting game against Boston in January.”

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

Veteran NBA forward Zach Randolph was arrested on a marijuana charge after several police cars were vandalized when a large gathering became unruly at a Los Angeles housing project, authorities said.

Randolph, 36, was taken into custody late Wednesday on suspicion of possessing marijuana with intent to sell, according to Los Angeles Police Department Officer Norma Eisenman.

“The charges are false and misleading,” said Randolph’s agent and lawyer, Raymond Brothers. “We’re looking at all options to resolve this matter.”

Police on patrol observed a crowd drinking, smoking pot, blasting music and blocking streets at the Nickerson Gardens project in Watts, authorities said.

The officers observed three people, including Randolph, “reach for their waist bands” and then run from the officers, Eisenman said in a statement.

An officer detained one of the three men – who was questioned and released – while Randolph and another man, Stanley Walton, went inside a home, police said.

A crowd began to form and the bystanders tried to block the officers, authorities said. Officers were able to enter the home, and arrested Randolph and Walton inside.

After the arrests, the crowd grew and people began throwing bottles and rocks, police said.

Five police cars and one sheriff’s vehicle ended up with smashed windows and slashed tires.

No officers were hurt.

Walton, 43, was arrested on suspicion of carrying a gun as an ex-convict. A police spokeswoman said she didn’t know if he has a lawyer.

Police recovered two guns, impounded two vehicles and seized narcotics, police said.

Randolph, a 16-year league veteran, spent eight seasons with the Memphis Grizzlies before signing with the Sacramento Kings in July.

The Kings issued a statement saying that the team was aware of the situation and would have no further comment at this time.
