Oklahoma City Thunder's Alex Abrines tries to score at the end of a regular-season NBA basketball game with the Brooklyn Nets in Mexico City, Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017. Those games are the centerpiece of the N.B.A.'s 25th anniversary celebration of its first exhibition game in Mexico in 1992 and the 20th anniversary of its first regular-season game here (Dec. 6, 1987).

The past three games were at home, where the Thunder are 9-3.

LeVert made a handful of the right plays, especially on defense as the Nets held the Thunder to 16 points in the fourth quarter. "We just have to stay committed to the little things and keep fighting for each other".

With John Wall (knee) still sidelined, Bradley Beal (34/2/4) stepped up in a big way for the second-straight game, knocking down 13-of-22 shots in the victory for the Wizards. Oklahoma City is 2-9 on the road and enters its visit to Mexico on a seven-game road losing streak since beating the Milwaukee Bucks on October 31.

Adams had 12 points and 14 rebounds while Carmelo Anthony finished 11 points and 11 rebounds.

Russell Westbrook and Steven Adams kept the Thunder afloat, scoring 46 of OKC's 68 points. Seven Lakers scored in double-figures in the win, but Los Angeles shot just 12-of-24 from the free throw line, thus indicating that they could have pulled away earlier had they simply converted more of those attempts.

The Rockets made 18 three-pointers, giving them a total of 41 in two games against the Jazz this season.

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

"I thought the biggest challenge was, if you look at our possessions, they were really, really good when we got downhill (with dribble penetration)", Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. Russell underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on November 17. 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.
