  • Jeremy Lin and the Brooklyn Nets will be “Los Nets” on Dec. 7 when they kick off a two-game “homestand” in Mexico City against the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat respectively. AP

The Nets faced off against the Atlanta Hawks in the regular season in 2014, took on the Toronto Raptors twice during the regular season in 2011 and played a preseason game against the Miami Heat back in 2008.

The Miami HEAT and the NBA announced Wednesday that the team will participate in the NBA Mexico City Games 2017, facing the Brooklyn Nets in a regular-season contest on December 9, 2017, at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico.

The experience will be special for both the teams and the fans in Mexico, who will get an up close and personal look at the talented Thunder squad, led by 2016-17 Kia NBA Most Valuable Player Russell Westbrook and four-time NBA All-Star Paul George.

ESPN and Televisa in Mexico will broadcast the game, which will also be available to watch on NBA League Pass. The league has worked toward developing basketball at the grassroots level in Mexico through programs such as Liga Telmex NBA, Jr. It may also signal an uptick in the number of games we can expect to see played there in the future.

The arguably absurd schedule of the National Basketball Association last season also had a lot of backlashes from television partners as certain players did not play in high profile matches last season thus sinking ratings for highly anticipated National Basketball Association games. The NBA schedule is expected to be finalized this week with the full schedule expected to be released soon. "We are excited to take part in fostering the NBA's global outreach and to connect with the Nets current and growing fan base in Mexico". "This is a competitive market, well over 20 million people".

The Thunder has traveled internationally to compete outside the NBA's 28 cities before. Clearly coming to Mexico City just because of the huge population here in Mexico but in essence as a gateway to the rest of Latin America could potentially be very important to the league.
