Nets to face Thunder, Heat in Mexico City next season

Report has Heat playing Nets in Mexico in December

The Miami Heat will play a regular season game against the Brooklyn Nets in Mexico on December 9th.

As the regular season gets closer we now have two major changes, the schedule and new rules to improve game flow. "We are playing against two really good teams".

Atktinson, who has coached in Mexico previously, is relishing the opportunity to take his team to its new home away from home at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico, which holds upwards of 16,000 fans.

National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver has made it known that Mexico is a country the league would like to explore further, even mentioning the possibility of adding a franchise in Mexico City in the future.

"We just really felt the passion of the Mexican fans".

Fans in Mexico will receive a first-hand look at reigning NBA Most Valuable Player Russell Westbrook next season when the Oklahoma City Thunder play the Brooklyn Nets in the nation's capital.

The Suns played the Spurs and Mavericks in Mexico City last season, and more than 20,000 fans showed up for each game at Mexico City Arena. "Our players and staff are looking forward to exploring Mexico City and its culture, while providing fans with the experience of two regular-season Brooklyn Nets games".

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.

"I am pleased to be extending the Nets' global presence to Mexico in December", added Brett Yormark, CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment.

The Heat have played multiple preseason games outside the United States and Canada in the past, but they have never played an worldwide regular-season game.

The games will be televised by ESPN in the USA and Televisa in Mexico.
