Recap

Nets edge Kings 97-95 in China



Posted Oct 12 2014 4:52AM

SHANGHAI (AP) Mirza Teletovic sank a 3-pointer with less than a minute remaining to lift the Brooklyn Nets to a 97-95 preseason win over the Sacramento Kings on Sunday in the first of two NBA exhibition games to be played in China this year.

The Kings had a chance to tie the score with 20 seconds remaining, but Sergey Karasev blocked a jumper by Ben McLemore beneath the rim as time expired.

Brook Lopez led the Nets with 18 points and six rebounds and Deron Williams added 12 points and six assists. Teletovic and Jarrett Jack had 10 points apiece.

The Kings were led by Ramon Sessions off the bench with 18 points and Darren Collison with 15.

Sacramento opened up a 95-91 lead on a jumper by rookie Nik Stauskas with 2:23 left in the game, but Marquis Teague sank three of four free throws down the stretch before Teletovic sealed the win with his 3-pointer off a pass from Jack.

The game marked the 10th anniversary of the NBA's first pre-season exhibitions in China, played by the Kings and Yao Ming's Houston Rockets in Shanghai and Beijing in 2004.

Yao was on hand to celebrate the anniversary, entering the arena midway through the first quarter to a huge round of applause. He was joined by a handful of other former NBA stars, including Shaquille O'Neal - who grabbed the microphone late in the game and bellowed "Ni hao" (Hello) to the fans - as well as former Kings players Vlade Divac, Mitch Richmond and Peja Stojakovic.

The Kings and Nets play again in Beijing on Wednesday.

A lot has changed since the first NBA game in Shanghai in 2004, which was played at a rundown city gymnasium with only 3,000 tickets available for fans. By contrast, Sunday's game was played at the state-of-the-art, 18,000-seat Mercedes Benz Arena with giant screens mounted over the courts, corporate hospitality booths and a halftime acrobatic show.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver noted how important the Chinese market has become in recent years, saying there are now 300 million people playing basketball in the country-nearly the entire population of the United States.

"The growth of the NBA over the last decade has exceeded our expectations," he said. "It's been remarkable over the past 10 years how knowledgeable the Chinese fans have become about the NBA, and not just its superstars but every roster from player one to player 15."
