Which teams are playing at the NBA Abu Dhabi Games 2024?



The exciting event is taking place at Etihad Arena.

Do you know your backboard from your brick? Well, get ready to dribble your way over to the NBA Abu Dhabi Games 2024. We are buzzing with excitement, as the teams have been unveiled. Returning for the third time to the capital, the event will take place on 4 and 6 October 2024 and will see the Boston Celtics take on the reigning 2023 NBA Champions, Denver Nuggets.

The Boston Celtics are an institution in the NBA. Founded in 1946, they are one of the league's eight original teams and are tied with the Los Angeles Lakers for the most NBA championships at 17. Known for their iconic green uniforms and passionate fans, the Celtics remain a force to be reckoned with, and we hope to see Jayson Christopher Tatum take to the court in the capital.

The Denver Nuggets have carved a niche in the NBA, establishing themselves as a team synonymous with high-flying offense and exciting play. Their identity revolves around the explosive point guard Nikola Jokić, a two-time NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP) known for his unmatched passing skills and offensive prowess. Alongside him, Jamal Murray and Aaron Gordon provide scoring punch and defensive tenacity.

So far, we know that the event will attract big names from the basketball world’s past and present. Taking place at Etihad Arena, it will also include fan experiences, such as a custom Nike shoe studio and behind-the-scenes tours. Last year's event welcomed the Dallas Mavericks and Minnesota Timberwolves and drew big names from the sport, including Gary Payton, Kenny Smith, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Tim Hardaway Sr. Hollywood actor Michael B. Jordan made an appearance, as did rapper turned singer T-Pain.

The NBA Abu Dhabi Games 2024 is the brainchild of an incredible partnership between the NBA and DCT Abu Dhabi, and they’ve pulled out all the stops to make this event an absolute slam dunk. From jaw-dropping performances on the court to mind-blowing interactive experiences off the court, this collaborative effort is all about giving you the basketball experience of a lifetime.
