The Thunder Bandwagon is set to start rolling again Sunday night.

In The Oklahoman and on NewsOK.com, we've got all sorts of fun planned for the Bandwagon, but really, this is all about you, Thunder fans. We want to provide you access and content like never before. We want to give you everything you need to enjoy the ride.

WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT SUNDAY

Thunder Alley is back this year but only before tipoff.

The family-friendly fun zone outside the arena on Reno Avenue will start three hours before each home playoff game, then will conclude as the game begins. The game will not be broadcast on the Jumbotron outside the arena.

Activities that will be part of Thunder Alley include a beer garden, inflatable games, face painting, and appearances by the Thunder Girls and Thunder Drummers. The Thunder Live pregame show will also originate from Thunder Alley.

Free T-shirts will also be given to every fan in attendance. For Game 1 against the Rockets, the shirts will be blue.

The Thunder is asking fans to wear blue on Sunday whether they are going to the game or not as a way to join in the playoff spirit.
