The Brooklyn Nets will play two regular-season games in Mexico City this season, the NBA announced Wednesday. They will play the Oklahoma City Thunder on Dec. 7 and the Miami Heat on Dec. 9 at Arena Ciudad de Mexico. The games will be broadcast live on ESPN. “These games will be our 25th and 26th in Mexico, the most played in any country outside of the United States and Canada,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement. “They will also mark the 25th anniversary of our first game in Mexico City, a milestone in our relationship with our Mexican fans and a further indication of our desire to strengthen our ties to Mexico and Latin America.”

Free-agent guard Briante Weber has agreed to a two-way contract with the Houston Rockets, league sources told ESPN.
Using a hard screen on the sideline set by Towns on Paul George to get free, Wiggins crossed midcourt and let fly on a running jumper as the buzzer sounding. As Paul Pierce once said, Wiggins didn’t call bank; he called game as the Wolves stunned the Thunder, 115-113. “Everyone was scrambling. Taj [Gibson] made a good pass, he was patient and found me, and KAT had a great screen to get me open,” Wiggins said. “And I let it go and it felt great.”
This season, with eight new players added to the Cavs’ mix — including former All-Stars Isaiah Thomas, Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose — a weakness has become a strength. “It’s two games in, but me having the full confidence in my teammates, I think we got the best bench in the league,” shooting guard JR Smith told ESPN after Cleveland’s bench outscored the Milwaukee Bucks 45-23 in a 116-97 win on Friday. “I mean, you can go around from 6 through 12 or whatever and mark it up against anybody else’s bench, and by far, we got the best bench. And we have more experience too.”
