Atlanta Hawks at Toronto Raptors – 4:30pm NBA League Pass: It’s the top two teams in the East. Yes! Really!
Washington Capitals at Nashville Predators – 5pm NHLN: Capitals coach Barry Trotz makes his first visit back to Smashville after 17 years at the helm of the Predators. A warm welcome off the ice is expected.
Portland Trailblazers at San Antonio Spurs – 5:30pm NBA League Pass: It’s a playoff preview, let’s be honest.
Saturday January 17th
Duke at Louisville – 9am ESPN: So Duke can’t win a game all of a sudden. Not a good place to try and stop a losing streak but if anybody can do it, it’s them.
Utah at Arizona – 4pm PAC 12 Network: Big game out West between top 10 teams.
Golden State Warriors at Houston Rockets – 5pm NBA-TV: It’s a tough match up for the Warriors especially since they had to battle OKC the night before.
Portland Trailblazers at Memphis Grizzlies – 6pm NBA League Pass: Another potential playoff match up.
Kansas at Iowa State – 6pm ESPN: Big game in the Big 12 and never an easy place to play. Jayhawks better bring their ‘A’ game and take care of the basketball.
Anaheim Ducks at LA Kings – 7pm NHL GameCenter: It’s two teams that have been very good over the last few years and they don’t like each other very much.
Sunday January 18th

NY Rangers at Pittsburgh Penguins – 9:30am NBC: A little Sunday morning hockey for ya. Couldn’t hurt.
Green Bay Packers at Seattle Seahawks – Noon FOX: It’s probably what most of us thought would happen in the NFC.
Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots – 3:40pm CBS: Not what most of us thought would happen but hey, maybe Andrew Luck can will the Colts to a win?
UFC Fight Night – 7pm FS1: Most people are talking about Conor McGregor and that’s fine. Let us not forget about Benson Henderson taking on Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone. Cowboy fought two weeks ago in Las Vegas and now gets a chance to redeem two losses on his record.
