Westbrook finished with 30 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds in a 124-105 home win November 18, 2016, and 25 points 19 assists and 12 boards in a 122-104 victory at Brooklyn on March 14.

Allen Crabbe had 15 points for Brooklyn, playing without guards Jeremy Lin and D'Angelo Russell because of injuries and without power forward Trevor Booker after he was traded to Philadelphia before the game.

Granted, the Nets are just 10-14 after Thursday's 100-95 win over the Thunder and they were a combined 41-123 over the prior two seasons. Okafor and G Nik Stauskas will not play in the games in Mexico City, the second of which has the Nets facing the Miami Heat on Saturday.

The Thunder have not played any worldwide regular-season games in the Oklahoma City era, but they played a preseason game in Manchester, England, in 2013.

Steven Adams scored 12 points for the Thunder, and Carmelo Anthony had 11 on 5-for-20 shooting.

George was seen with his right calf wrapped in ice following Tuesday's game and has since been diagnosed with a right calf contusion.

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. 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.

Ingram led the Lakers with 21 points.

Since Spencer Dinwiddie (5/4/7) spent most of the night in foul trouble and picked up his fourth foul early in the second quarter, he was held to just 19 minutes. The Nets will play two regular-season games in the Mexican capital this week. The Nets didn't get their 10th win last season until March 1. "We are in a good place a little over a year into this".

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio recently joked at a town hall meeting that the Nets' move from New Jersey to Brooklyn hasn't panned out very well. "I feel like we're getting better game by game".
