Update: The injury reports and starting lineup projections have been updated.

The only win that the Oklahoma City Thunder have over the last 13 games came against the Toronto Raptors.

They’ll look to avoid a 10-game losing streak with the same opponent on Sunday night. Oklahoma City and Toronto will face off, but the Raptors are in a slightly different situation from the last time the two teams played.

Toronto only won one game in all of March, and closed the month with the loss to OKC. Now, the Raptors are on a two-game win streak, but more importantly, they’re suddenly just half a game back from 10th place and the play-in seed.

Here are the details of how to watch the game:

Opponent: Toronto Raptors
Date and time: April 18, 6 p.m. CT
How to watch: Bally Sports Oklahoma
Radio station: WWLS 98.1 FM OKC
