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

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

As if playing two home games this week in a foreign country wasn't enough of a challenge, the Nets found themselves bidding goodbye to Trevor Booker, who flew out to Philadelphia, and to Sean Kilpatrick, who was waived to make room for shooting guard Nik Stauskas, who moved with Okafor to the Nets in the trade. "It's up, it's down".

The Nets, who play the Heat on Saturday in Mexico City, have won four of their last six. According to the National Basketball Association, these will be be league's 25th and 26th games there, with the first having come 25 years ago in 1992.

Former Knick Carmelo Anthony totaled 11 points and 11 rebounds but shot 5-for-20. During the three-game winning streak, Adams is averaging 22 points and 8.3 rebounds, and he has made 28 of 34 shots.

OKC led 33-17 late in the first quarter, and were up nine at halftime, before seeing those leads slip away in the second half. We understand that. But we also understand that it's a mindset you've got to have going into it about how you prepare, how you play, how you feel. That's the way we played the first half. "They have a bunch of superstars, so they might have more fans than us there".

While Oklahoma City possesses a star point guard, the Nets have a few developing ones while D'Angelo Russell recovers from knee surgery.

Caris LeVert led Brooklyn with 21 points off the bench.

There was no recurrence of the natural disaster that shook Mexico's capital in September, but the Nets' world was rocked Monday afternoon by news that they had completed a trade for Philadelphia center Jahlil Okafor.

The Thunder now have won three straight close games after making a habit of losing them.

Both plans demonstrate the importance of the Mexico City market to the league's desire to further grow in Latin America.

Or the hope of a new roster in Oklahoma City met by the crushing disappointment of an 11-12 start.
