LONDON, July 29 (AP) -- Tickets for the NBA preseason matchup between the Miami Heat and the New Jersey Nets in London are sold out - nearly three months before the game.
Tickets to the Oct. 12 game at the 16,500-seat O2 Arena went on sale March 31 and were all taken by late last week, organizers said Tuesday.
It's the second straight year that the NBA Europe Live game at the venue has sold out. The Boston Celtics beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 92-81 in a preseason game last year.
This year's game is one of four in Europe. The Heat and the Nets first meet in Paris on Oct. 9 before the rematch in London.
The New Orleans Hornets and the Washington Wizards play in Berlin on Oct. 14 before meeting in the final of the four-game tour in Barcelona, Spain, three days later.
