The Oklahoma City Thunder will have another afternoon basketball game.

After falling to the New York Knicks on Saturday, they’ll look to bounce back against the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday.

The Grizzlies, 17-17, are coming off a one-point loss to the Denver Nuggets. Oklahoma City’s biggest challenge will be managing Jonas Valanciunas off the glass. The center has eight games of at least 15 rebounds this season and two with 20, and the Thunder will presumably be without Al Horford on the second night of a back-to-back.

Here are the details of how to watch:

Opponent: Memphis Grizzlies
Date and time: March 14, 1 p.m. CT
How to watch: FOX Sports Oklahoma
Radio station: WWLS 98.1FM OKC
