What channel is Thunder vs. Pelicans on today? Time, TV schedule, live stream for Game 3 of 2024 NBA Playoffs series | Sporting News United Kingdom

The top-seeded Thunder can take a commanding lead in their first-round Western Conference playoff series against the Pelicans on Saturday in New Orleans.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led Oklahoma City with 33 points, Chet Holmgren had 26 points and seven rebounds and Jalen Williams added 21 points in a124-92 victory over the Pelicans in Game 2.

The Thunder shot a impressive 59% from the field and were 14 of 29 from beyond the arc. Oklahoma City was also stout defensively and scored 22 points off 18 turnovers.

New Orleans is hampered by the absence of Zion Williamson, who is out with a strained left hamstring. The team announced Williamson would be re-evaluated in about two weeks following the April 17 diagnosis. That means that Williamson won’t be cleared to return until at least May 1, which coincides with Game 5 of New Orleans’ first-round series with Oklahoma City.

Jonas Valanciunas had19 points, while Herb Jones and Brandon Ingram scored 18 points apiece for the Pelicans in the second game and they desperately need a win at home.
