Players show no fear of heading to Mexico City

The Associated Press - December 7, 2017 10:19 am

MEXICO CITY (AP) – No earthquakes or volcanos are in the back of the mind of the Brooklyn Nets players and coaches ahead of their regular-season game Thursday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Mexico City.

At least publicly.

The game will be the 25th in NBA history South of the Border, the most for any country besides the United States and Canada. It also is the first since a 7.1 earthquake on Sept. 19 killed over 300 people, most of them in the nation’s capital.
