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

OKC Thunder Center Steven Adams

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George will miss Thursday night's game against the Brooklyn Nets with a right calf contusion, according to Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman.

However, this clearly points to the NBA's growing interest in expansion. Washington shot 50.6 percent and dished out 25 assists compared to 10 turnovers.

"My teammates got a lot of confidence in me", LeVert said in his on-court interview with the YES Network. "I just don't want to comment".

Brooklyn improved to 10-14. "We are in a good place a little over a year into this". The Nets are heading to Mexico after an impressive second half showing Monday in a 110-90 victory at Atlanta, where they scored the first 17 points of the second half and led by as many as 29.

The final score was a bit misleading in this one, as the Rockets were up by 22 points heading into the fourth quarter.

"It feels great, the atmosphere was insane", LeVert said.

But she got the last word
Reed told Atlanta Black Star it was timing that led her to respond the way she did - right then and there during election night. Bottoms is black and Norwood is white. "And it's one that has clearly entered the Atlanta mayor's race".

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

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.

Adams had 12 points and 14 rebounds while Carmelo Anthony finished 11 points and 11 rebounds. The Nets will play in three countries in the first half of December. Oklahoma City was up by nine at halftime and took a 79-74 lead into the fourth but did not lead after Westbrook's free throw with 7:38 to go. But Crabbe, Hollis-Jefferson and Spencer Dinwiddie each made a 3-pointer to help Brooklyn grab a 93-85 advantage with 5:38 left. "When we didn't get downhill, we really struggled". And though for years that talk has led to little progress, the National Basketball Association now seems serious about bringing is product to Mexico.

While Oklahoma City possesses a star point guard, the Nets have a few developing ones while D'Angelo Russell recovers from knee surgery. They will play the Miami Heat on Saturday at Arena Ciudad de Mexico.

The NBA is plans to put a G-League team in Mexico City as early as next season, Marc Stein of The New York Times reports.
