Backstory: Didn't we just see the Kings? Yeah, we did. And we're going to have to go up against our weakness one more time. Since last seeing them, the Kings have won against Houston and lost against Dallas. The Thunder have Lost against Denver and won against the Clippers. Not much has changed, except the setting of the game.
I have a feeling the Thunder will jump out to a lead at some point in this game while the Kings continue their inside barrage. If they can buckle down on the inside (maybe break out some Etan Thomas?) at that point and maintain their lead, then we shouldn't have a problem winning this game. Just, for Pete's sake, please don't blow it late in the 4th!
Prediction: Oklahoma City 112, Sacramento 101
