Wembanyama and Spurs to face Haliburton and Pacers in two regular-season games in Paris in January 2025 - THIS DAY IN THE NBA



Friday June 7, 2024

The National Basketball Association (NBA) announced that The NBA Paris Games 2025, which will be presented by Tissot, will feature the five-time NBA champion San Antonio Spurs and the Indiana Pacers playing regular-season games in Paris on Thursday, Jan. 23 and Saturday, Jan. 25, 2025, marking the first time the NBA will play two regular-season games in the French capital in the same season.

The NBA Paris Games 2025 presented by Tissot will mark the Spurs' third and fourth games in Paris, having last played a preseason game there in 2006. San Antonio currently features French star and 2023 No. 1 overall draft pick Victor Wembanyama, 2024 NBA Rising Stars participant Jeremy Sochan and 2020 Olympic gold medalist Keldon Johnson.

The Pacers will be playing their first games in France. Indiana currently features 2024 NBA All-Star Tyrese Haliburton, 2019 NBA champion and two-time NBA All-Star Pascal Siakam, and two-time NBA blocks leader Myles Turner. The Pacers are currently facing the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the NBA Playoffs 2024 presented by Google Pixel.

Tissot, the Official Watch and Official Timekeeper of the NBA, and a global marketing partner of the league since 2015, will serve as Presenting Partner of The NBA Paris Games for the first time. Tissot will showcase its latest watches at The NBA Paris Games 2025 and at its flagship store on the iconic Champs-Élysées.

In addition to the games, the league, the Spurs and the Pacers will conduct interactive fan activities, NBA Cares community outreach initiatives and Jr. NBA youth basketball development programming that will bring the NBA experience to fans in Paris.

Additional information about ticket sales, the venue and the surrounding events and activities will be announced at a later date. Fans can register their interest in tickets and gain access to presale information and more by visiting NBA.com/Paris.

Fans in France can find more NBA information at NBA.com/France - the league's official online destination in France hosted on beINSports.com - on Facebook (NBA France), Instagram (NBAEurope) and X (@NBAFrance), and by downloading the NBA App. They can also purchase the latest NBA merchandise at the NBA Store in Paris and at NBAStore.eu.

NBA Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer Mark Tatum said, "The return of the San Antonio Spurs and Victor Wembanyama to Paris to face Tyrese Haliburton and the Indiana Pacers will be a landmark moment for the growth of basketball in Europe. With support from Tissot, the two regular-season games and surrounding events in Paris will galvanize fans in France, across Europe and around the world at a time when the momentum for basketball in the region has never been greater."


June 7, 1978 The Washington Bullets traveled to Seattle and defeated the SuperSonics 105-99 in Game 7 to win the NBA Championship. During this series, Washington coach Dick Motta famously proclaimed, “The opera isn’t over until the fat lady sings.“

June 7, 1990 Terry Porter of the Portland Trail Blazers made all 15 of his free throw attempts in Portland 106-105 overtime win over Detroit in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. Porter’s perfect performance set an NBA Finals record for most free throws made without a miss.

June 7, 1992 In Game 3 of the NBA Finals, Chicago and Portland combined to score only 31 points in the third quarter, the lowest-scoring third quarter in Finals history. The Blazers’ 94-84 loss was the ninth straight homecourt defeat suffered by a Western Conference club, dating back to 1989, also an NBA Finals record.

June 7, 1993 New Jersey guard Drazen Petrovic, a 1993 All-NBA Third Team selection and a member of the Croatian team that won a silver medal at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, was killed in an automobile accident in Germany.

June 7, 1995 Bolstered by the outside shooting of guard Kenny Smith, who set NBA Finals records for most three-point field goals made in a game (7) and quarter (5), Houston overcame a 20-point first-half deficit and defeated host Orlando 120-118 in overtime in Game 1 of the ‘95 Finals. Hakeem Olajuwon’s tip-in with only three-tenths of a second left in OT gave the Rockets their comeback victory and a 1-0 series lead. The teams also combined to fire up an NBA Playoff and Finals record 62 three-pointers, with the Rockets hitting 14-of-32 attempts and the Magic 9-of-30.

June 7, 1998 The Chicago Bulls defeat the Utah Jazz 96-54 in the most lopsided game in the history of the NBA Finals. The 54 points by the Jazz is also an NBA record for fewest points in a game since the inception of the 24-second shot clock.

June 7, 2000 Shaquille O’Neal scores 43 points against the Indiana Pacers in Game 1 of NBA Finals 2000, using a variety of dunks, spin moves and jump hooks. In doing so, he continued a trend established at the start of NBA Playoffs 2000. In the Lakers’ first game in the first round against Sacramento, O’Neal exploded for 46 points. In a second round series opener against Phoenix, he posted a 37-point effort. In the Western Conference Finals opener against Portland, he came out of the box with 41 points. In all, O’Neal averaged 41.8 ppg in the year’s playoff openers. O'Neal's domination in Game 1 nearly landed him in the NBA Finals record book. He finished the night with 21 field goals, one shy of the NBA Finals mark of 22, co-held by Elgin Baylor and Rick Barry. O'Neal joins Baylor, Barry, Jerry West and Michael Jordan as the only players in NBA Finals history to hit for at least 21 field goals in a game.
