Nets Mount 4th Quarter Comeback to Defeat Thunder

MEXICO CITY – Caris LeVert scored 21 points, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson put up 17 and Allen Crabbe added another 15 as the Brooklyn Nets left it late to come back and beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 100-95 on Thursday at the Mexico City Arena.

The Thunder led the game until the closing stages when Crabbe, with a three-pointer, helped the Nets pull ahead 87-85, a lead the team held on to the game’s end.

The Nets (10-14) started poorly, taking time to settle during their “home” game against the Thunder, but managed to rescue the game in the end.

This was the second consecutive win for Kenny Atkinson’s team, who remain in 5th place in the Atlantic Division.

Tyler Zeller and Quincy Acy, with 11 points each, provided the platform for the Nets’ victory, despite the absence of D’Angelo Russell, Trevor Booker and Jeremy Lin.

Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, who won the 2017 NBA Most Valuable Player award, added 31 points, 18 in the first half, to lead the attack for his team, who ran out of steam in the last quarter.

This was the first loss for the Thunder (11-13) after three consecutive wins, and they stay in 5th place in the Northwest Division.

Thunder star forward Carmelo Anthony also added 11 points and Steve Adams 12, while Paul George sat out the game.

The Thunder will now play against the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday while the Nets will host the Miami Heat, also at the Mexico City Arena, the same day.
