London Sees Nets-Heat Game as Olympic Tune-Up

On Sunday, the Olympic torch will begin its journey from Beijing to London, site of the 2012 Games, and British officials are pointing to the Nets' October 12 game with the Heat as an Olympic tune-up for the city. The game will be held at the O2 Arena, where hoop teams will battle at the 2012 Games. London also plans a two-day "Central Court" event at the South Bank Centre prior to the Nets game.
