The second game on the schedule — another Western Conference matchup — is scheduled to be broadcast October 5 at 10:30 p.m. ET, also on ESPN.  This time, the Sacramento Kings (Pacific Division) are scheduled to visit fellow Pacific Division foes and defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors in that game.
