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 NBAannounced 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.

"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.
