A couple of months ago it was announced that Mexico City would host an NBA regular season game again in 2022 and a few hours ago this information was confirmed from the United States.

The game will be played on December 17 and will face the San Antonio Spurs at home and the Miami Heat as a visitor.

Although there are still 4 months to go before the appointment, the organization of the meeting is already taking steps so that everything goes smoothly, after almost 3 years of absence from the NBA in Mexico due to the pandemic.

The meeting is part of the international vision of the NBA and its expansion in Mexico and Latin America, and teams from two states, Texas and Florida, which have a high percentage of Hispanic population, will participate.

To date, neither Spurs nor Heat have Hispanic players in their ranks.

The only reference in this sense must be found in the Cuban coach Octavio de la Granawho has been working as an assistant to erik spoelstra in the last 6 years and who accumulates an experience of 12 seasons in Heat in two stages of his career.
