The NBA Paris Game 2024 will showcase an intense matchup between the Brooklyn Nets and the Cleveland Cavaliers, marking the league’s third regular-season game in Paris. Taking place at the Accor Arena on Thursday, Jan. 11, 2024, this game promises to be a thrilling experience for fans and players alike.

The Brooklyn Nets’ General Manager, Sean Marks, expressed his enthusiasm for participating in the NBA Paris Game 2024, stating, “We’re extremely excited to have the opportunity to compete in The NBA Paris Game 2024 and bring Nets basketball to an international stage. Our players and coaches will benefit greatly from the experience of immersing themselves in Paris’s rich culture off the court.”
