Nets rally past Thunder in Mexico City

Oklahoma City Thunder and Brooklyn Nets players compete for the ball during a NBA Global Games match at the Mexico City Arena

LeVert added four foul shots in the final 19 seconds.

NOTES: Brooklyn G D'Angelo Russell (right knee) is on the trip to Mexico, but coach Kenny Atkinson said he has not started running.

"We were hopeful and optimistic that they would be able to [play]", Donovan told Dawson.

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 feel that every game we are getting more comfortable within the roster", Atkinson said.

Russell Westbrook and Steven Adams kept the Thunder afloat, scoring 46 of OKC's 68 points. Anthony shot 5 of 20, and the Thunder wound up at 38.8 percent. "We are in a good place a little over a year into this". The Nets will play two regular-season games in the Mexican capital this week.

Westbrook made a foul shot to give Oklahoma City an 85-84 lead with 7:38 left.

Brooklyn went on top for good at 87-85 on a 3-pointer by Crabbe on its next possession. Russell underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on November 17.

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.

Bradley Beal continued his offensive surge with 34 points, and Washington won back-to-back games for the first time in nearly a month with a victory over Phoenix. The Thunder play at Memphis on Saturday.

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.
