The NBA’s Brooklyn Nets on Thursday night hosted Israeli team Maccabi Ra'anana for a preseason game.

Before the game, the Nets held a moment of silence for the victims of the Hamas attack in Israel.

“The Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center condemn the terrorist attacks and mourn the senseless loss of life in Israel. We stand together against terror and our thoughts are with all who have been impacted by these tragic events,” the Nets wrote on X.

In addition, Israeli singer Noa Kirel, who represented Israel in the Eurovision Song Contest, sang Israel’s national anthem, Hatikvah, and concluded with the words “Am Yisrael Chai”.

On Sunday, the National Basketball Association (NBA) and National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) said they “mourn the horrific loss of life in Israel and condemn these acts of terrorism.”

“We stand with the people of Israel and pray for peace for the entire region,” the statement added.
