The Brooklyn Nets will learn if they can stop Westbrook at 7,382 feet Thursday night when they face the Oklahoma City Thunder in Mexico City as part of the NBA's Global Games.

The Thunder also played short-handed as Paul George sat with a calf injury and Jerami Grant sat with a hip injury.

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

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.

"As a New Yorker and as the commissioner of the National Basketball Association, I couldn't be happier with what's happening with the Nets".

He successfully shadowed Russell Westbrook at times as the Nets (10-14) completed their biggest comeback since rallying from 18 points down to beat the Los Angeles Clippers in double overtime on November 29, 2017.

The OSCE has deployed 600 unarmed monitors in Ukraine to investigate and deter ceasefire violations, but they often come under fire from the warring factions.

The OKC Thunder look to extend their winning streak to 4 as they travel to Mexico City to play the Brooklyn Nets. 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. LeVert added four foul shots in the final 19 seconds.

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

The Thunder held a 16-point advantage late in the first quarter, but the Nets gradually came back.

Brooklyn went on top for good at 87-85 on a 3-pointer by Crabbe on its next possession.

He also recorded two of his 42 triple-doubles against the Nets last season.

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. We knew it was going to take a little time. "I feel like we're getting better game by game".
