What To Watch: Monday

by Robbie Gillies

5:30pm ET - TNT - Bulls @ Grizzlies - The Bulls did just beat the Pistons, but you know how dangerous the Memphis home court advantage is...no wait, the Grizzlies are 7-13 at home.

7pm - ESPN - Syracuse @ #6 Georgetown
- Maybe if Memphis doesn't use Hakim Warrick (they haven't used him much) he can suit up for the Orange as both can remember better times. Syracuse is struggling in Big East play and are definitely a bubble team...for the NIT.

7:30pm - Versus - Capitals @ Penguins
- It was supposed to be the match-up of the two young faces of the NHL in the Capitals, Alex Ovechkin and the Penguins, Sidney Crosby, but Crosby is out with a sprained ankle. Both teams are coming in hot. The Penguins have won 10 of their past 12 games and the Caps have won five out of six.

8pm - TNT - Cavaliers @ Heat - Cavs have won seven of eight and are looking like contenders in the East. The Heat, on the other hand have lost 13 straight and most recently lost to the Knicks.

9pm - ESPN - Texas @ Oklahoma State
- These two teams have a little history. Remember this?

10:30pm - TNT - Nuggets @ Lakers - Yeah, it's late, but with both teams averaging over 107 points per game, it should be exciting. With just six games separating first place in the West and missing the playoffs, every game is important.

Non-sports pick - 9pm - History Channel - Life After People - What would happen to the Earth if humans suddenly disappeared?
