Sacramento Kings lived to fight another day in the NBA play-in tournament.

Now they get to exercise another demon Fright night when they travel to New Orleans in a single-elimination game with the Pelicans.

Tipoff from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans is set for 6:30 p.m. PST on Friday, April 19.

How do I watch or listen to the Sacramento Kings vs Pelicans?

The Sacramento Kings play-in game will follow the conclusion of the Eastern Conference matchup between the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat on ESPN.

Is there a watch party at the Golden 1 Center?
