    LONDON -- The NBA is coming back to London with a regular-season game between the Detroit Pistons and New York Knicks in January.

    The NBA says the Pistons and Knicks will play on Jan. 17 at the O2 Arena, the site of this year's Olympic gold-medal game.

    The Toronto Raptors and New Jersey Nets played a pair of regular-season games at the same venue in March 2011, but the NBA skipped London on its preseason tour this year.

    NBA Commissioner David Stern says "playing our third regular-season game in the city in three years and having historic franchises like the Knicks and Pistons serve as our ambassadors provide extraordinary opportunities

    Well one way for the NBA to get a more packed arena than a regular Detroit game I guess. Both teams were given decent days in advance and after the game so it's not too bad of an idea I guess.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Better late than never to finally punish Detroit for their crappy security by taking away one of their home games, I guess. Of course the NBA does it when the Pistons can't hardly draw anyone to the Palace...
