On Sunday night, the Oklahoma City Thunder will play their second of three games against the Sacramento Kings in the month of May.
In the Tuesday matchup, the Thunder trailed by double-digits entering the fourth quarter but made a comeback and very nearly won. Sacramento managed to pull out the victory, however, helping Oklahoma City maintain its spot in the NBA draft lottery odds.
This time, the Thunder will face the Kings on the second night of a back-to-back coming off a 39-point loss to the Golden State Warriors.
Here are the details of how to watch:
Opponent: Sacramento Kings
Date and time: May 9, 7 p.m. CT

Aleksej Pokusevski (knee) has missed four of the last five games with a knee injury and seems likely to miss another. Ty Jerome was inactive against the Warriors on Saturday, so his status as of Sunday afternoon was unclear.
