Short-handed Nets beat Thunder 100-95 in Mexico City

Basketball fans watch the second half of a regular-season NBA basketball game between the Brooklyn Nets and Oklahoma City Thunder in Mexico City Thursday Dec. 7 2017. The Brooklyn Nets will also take on the Miami Heat Saturday in their second regular-s

Just as those games in Mexico might have been considered a trial run for a G League team there, that G League team could test the tenability of an National Basketball Association franchise based south of the border, a stated interest of Silver's.

The Nets held a 94-91 lead with 2:11 remaining when LeVert forced Westbrook into a turnover, the star guard throwing the ball out of bounds near midcourt.

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

Brooklyn would lead by as much as 29 as a three-point barrage ended any hopes of a Hawks comeback. Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson added 16 apiece off the bench for Los Angeles, which snapped a five-game losing streak. Those games are the centerpiece of the N.B.A.'s 25th anniversary celebration of its first exhibition game in Mexico in 1992 and the 20th anniversary of its first regular-season game here (Dec. 6, 1987).

The Nets have won three out of their last five games, including their last outing against the Atlanta Hawks, while Oklahoma City looks to finally build a rhythm and get back to the.500 mark with what would be a season-best four straight wins. Robert Covington chipped in 19 points, and rookie Ben Simmons contributed his third triple-double - 12 points, 13 rebounds and 15 assists.
