Nets rally past Thunder in Mexico City

Nets rally past Thunder in Mexico City

The Oklahoma City Thunder will be without forwards Paul George and Jerami Grant tonight, when they they face the Brooklyn Nets in Mexico City, according to Tim Bontemps of The Washington Post.

Westbrook had 31 points, eight rebounds and six assists.

This comes just a few weeks after a report from ESPN.com's Jonathon Givony that the league is planning to announce a development and training academy in Mexico City while the Nets, Thunder and Heat are there to take part in the Mexico City Global Games.

Oklahoma City Thunder's Alex Abrines tries to score at the end of a regular-season NBA basketball game with the Brooklyn Nets in Mexico City, Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017.

George is suffering from a right calf contusion, having his calf wrapped in ice after the game against the Utah Jazz, while Grant is ailing from a left hip contusion, which should have them sidelined for today's worldwide regular season game. "I spoke to everybody individually, I felt it was important, we told them why we made the trade and why it*s good for the future and they understood".

Since Spencer Dinwiddie (5/4/7) spent most of the night in foul trouble and picked up his fourth foul early in the second quarter, he was held to just 19 minutes.

Ingram led the Lakers with 21 points. That allowed Caris LeVert (21/5/10) to step into a major ball-handling role and he didn't disappoint, delivering his first career double-double for the Nets in Mexico City. Anthony shot 5 of 20, and the Thunder wound up at 38.8 percent. The Nets didn't get their 10th win last season until March 1.

The Brooklyn Nets arrive to Mexico City following a 110-90 away win against the Atlanta Hawks.

"You've got to think about it like we're coming from Brooklyn and we're playing OKC", Brooklyn forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson said Tuesday.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio recently joked at a town hall meeting that the Nets' move from New Jersey to Brooklyn hasn't panned out very well.
