National Basketball Association considering adding G League team in Mexico

"We have a preference for coming to Mexico City", Silver said, "because as we look down the road, frankly to see whether there would be an opportunity to even dream about putting an National Basketball Association franchise here in Mexico City, we believe it makes sense as a first step to have a development league team here and to work out some of the issues to better understand what it would mean to have a team in Mexico".

"I don't know how serious, or when we'll be able to evaluate", Suns interim coach Jay Triano said. "We're the same team that won the other night and we're the same team that lost tonight". We are sacrificing everything we got.

As part of the Thunder's new core trio along with Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony, George is averaging 20.7 points and 5.8 rebounds per game this season for Oklahoma City (11-12). "(Oklahoma City) is a real good team and they're a good closing team and they're at home.

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. It's about what you do when you get hit in the mouth. "We could've been down drastically more". 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.


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. In January 2014, they recorded a win over Atlanta in London's O2 Arena, and in March 2011, they beat the Toronto Raptors in two games at the same venue.

He played conductor brilliantly in the fourth quarter against the Jazz, but when the Thunder was playing poorly (himself included), he provided a spark through a lineup straight out of his MVP season.

The Thunder are 11-6 against the Nets in the Oklahoma City era.
