NBA Plans to Put a Minor-League Team in Mexico City

Report: Thunder's Paul George, Jerami Grant ruled out vs. Nets

Caris LeVert recorded his first career double-double with 21 points and 10 assists as the Brooklyn Nets rallied from a 16-point deficit and beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 100-95 on Thursday at Ciudad de Mexico Arena.

Westbrook had 31 points, eight rebounds and six assists.

He successfully shadowed Russell Westbrook at times as the Nets (10-14) completed their biggest comeback since rallying from 18 points down to beat the Los Angeles Clippers in double overtime on November 29, 2017.

Commissioner Adam Silver also announced plans to launch an NBA Academy in Mexico's capital during a news conference Thursday night before the Brooklyn Nets played the Oklahoma City Thunder.

After three close wins at home, the OKC Thunder hit the road to take on the Brooklyn Nets.

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 global regular season game.

LeVert gained possession, and he converted four free throws in the final 18 seconds. "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". Anthony shot 5 of 20, and the Thunder wound up at 38.8 percent.

Brooklyn went on top for good at 87-85 on a 3-pointer by Crabbe on its next possession.

Nets: Quincy Acy and Tyler Zeller each scored 11 points. They split two games against Atlanta before their trip to Mexico City. The Nets didn't get their 10th win last season until March 1. "We are in a good place a little over a year into this".

According to The New York Times, the National Basketball Association intends to put a G League (former D League) team in Mexico City, potentially as soon as next season.
