Friday January 24th
Montreal Canadiens @ Detroit Red Wings – 4:30pm NHL GameCenter: Detroit can pull closer to Montreal in the playoff race with a win. Negative, Detroit starting goalkeeper Jimmy Howard is out.
Los Angeles Clippers @ Chicago Bulls – 5pm ESPN: Top team in the Pacific vs the second team in the Central. Lob City in the Windy City anyone?
Saturday January 25th
Villanova @ Marquette – 11am FS1: Villanova is in the top 5 but Marquette is a very tough place to play.
Michigan @ Michigan State – 4pm ESPN: In-state and in-conference battle. Nice option for a Saturday night.
UFC ON FOX – 5pm FOX: Josh Thomson vs Benson Henderson in a lightweight contender fight. Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone is also on the card and he never has a boring fight.
Los Angeles Kings vs Anaheim Ducks – 6:30pm NBCSN: This one is outside at Dodger Stadium. They will even have a beach volleyball court on the field. So, hockey & beach volleyball in a baseball stadium in January. Makes sense.
Sunday January 26th
San Antonio Spurs @ Miami Heat – 10am ABC: This, as always, could be a preview of the NBA Finals.
Phoenix Coyotes @ Vancouver Canucks – 5pm NHL GameCenter: An important game in the Pacific division.
Portland Trailblazers @ Golden State Warriors – 6pm NBA League Pass: Two of the more exciting teams in the NBA on display.
