Ingram hits game-winner; Rockets top Jazz; Nets stun Thunder in Mexico

Two NBA games will be played in Mexico City this season by the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday and Saturday.

Westbrook finished with 31 points but shot 10 of 27 from the field.

Allen Crabbe had 15 points for Brooklyn, playing without guards Jeremy Lin and D'Angelo Russell because of injuries and without power forward Trevor Booker after he was traded to Philadelphia before the game.

Joel Embiid had 33 points to lead the 76ers, who dropped their second straight and their third in four games.

The OKC Thunder look to extend their winning streak to 4 as they travel to Mexico City to play the Brooklyn Nets.

Japanese priestess stabbed to death at shrine in apparent family feud
Thursday night's attack at the Tomioka Hachimangu shrine, established in 1627, was captured by nearby security cameras. The chauffeur of the shrine, who also got out of the vehicle , was chased by the woman who wielded a samurai sword.

As part of the Thunder's new core trio along with Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony, George is averaging 20.7 points and 5.8 rebounds per game this season for Oklahoma City (11-12).

George was seen with his right calf wrapped in ice following Tuesday's game and has since been diagnosed with a right calf contusion.

"We were hopeful and optimistic that they would be able to [play]", Donovan told Dawson.

Earlier in the news conference, Silver said the National Basketball Association is exploring the possibility of locating a G League franchise that would be league-owned in Mexico City.

Since Spencer Dinwiddie (5/4/7) spent most of the night in foul trouble and picked up his fourth foul early in the second quarter, he was held to just 19 minutes. 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. That allowed Caris LeVert (21/5/10) to step into a major ball-handling role and he didn't disappoint, delivering his first career double-double for the Nets in Mexico City. The Nets didn't get their 10th win last season until March 1. Oklahoma City is 2-9 on the road and enters its visit to Mexico on a seven-game road losing streak since beating the Milwaukee Bucks on October 31. "We are in a good place a little over a year into this".
