INJURY TO WATCH
Sacramento power forward Skal Labissiere (hip) has been downgraded to out for tonight. Iman Shumpert (foot) is out indefinitely. For the Thunder, shooting guard Terrance Ferguson (brain injury) is out. Center Steven Adams (ankle) is questionable. Shooting guard Andre Roberson (ruptured patellar tendon) is out for the season.
The Kings suffered a 130-104 blowout loss last night at the Nuggets, while Oklahoma City picked up its second win in a row two days ago via a 104-94 home triumph over the Spurs. The Thunder have struggled with inferior teams all season, allowing them to stay in the game too often and occasionally win it outright. Sacramento is a good example of that as it has kept the score within single digits each of the first three matchups and even won one of them outright. Why should we believe today will be different?
