The NBA Global Games is to feature two pre-season games in China between the Golden State Warriors and the Minnesota Timberwolves, the National Basketball Association (NBA) announced on Monday.

The Warriors and Timberwolves will arrive in Shenzhen on October 5th and will play at the Shenzhen Universiade Center. The second match will be held at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai on October 8th.

Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry said he has visited China every year since 2013 and the fans there are incredibly supportive.

“I'm excited about the opportunity to return to China, enjoy the country's culture, and bring the excitement of live NBA games directly to Chinese fans,” he added.

The Warriors played pre-season games in China in 2013 against the Los Angeles Lakers, but it will be the first time for the Timberwolves to visit China.
