LOS ANGELES -- The NBA is returning south of the border when the Los Angeles Clippers play the San Antonio Spurs in an Oct. 12 preseason game in Mexico City.

It will be the league's 17th visit to Mexico City and 19th game in the country, the most matchups in any country outside the United States and Canada.

The game will be played as part of the Olympic Sports Festival, which runs Oct. 9-17 as part of the bicentennial celebration of Mexican independence.

Other preseason games will be played in Barcelona, Spain, London, Milan, Italy and Paris.
