Brooklyn Nets defeated Sacramento Kings 129-117 in Beijing in what was their second of two pre-season games played in China.
Bosnian international Mirza Teletovic led the Nets with 22 points as Brooklyn needed a session of overtime to get the job done and conclude their Chinese adventure.
The Nets were ahead 112-109 with 41 seconds left when the Kings’ Omri Caspi drained a triple. On the next play, Mason Plumlee’s pass to Willie Reed slipped through his hands, sending the game into overtime.
The Nets went on to hold Sacramento to just five points in the extra periods, while posting 17 points in their own right.
“I’m proud of the way the young guys played,” Nets coach Lionel Hollins said. “I’m proud of the way our team competed. They are growing in that area of competitiveness and toughness and trying to wear down the other team.”
Ben McLemore led the Kings with 22 points. Rudy Gay added 21.
