What To Watch: Thursday

by Robbie Gillies

7pm ET - ESPN2 - USC @ #6 Oklahoma - The Sooners Blake Griffin will face his toughest test against USC's Taj Gibson who's averaging nearly 4 blocks per game. Griffin's got a few pounds on Gibson though and might look to muscle his way to another 20/20 game.

8pm - TNT - Suns @ Mavericks - Amare Stoudemire wants to be the man but he's only 26. He's got another 14 years before he reaches 40.

8pm - NFL Network - Raiders @ Chargers - If the Raiders win they will be tied for 2nd with the Chargers in the AFC West. Could the Chargers situation be even worse than the Raiders?

9pm - ESPN2 - #12 UCLA @ #8 Texas - Touted UCLA freshman Jrue Holliday had his breakout game Saturday against Florida International. Jrue went 8 for 8, scored 20 points and had 3 steals. They will need him to contribute to beat Texas in Austin.

10:30pm - Spurs @ Nuggets - These two teams seem to be going in opposite directions. The Nuggets are 12-3 since acquiring Billups and hold the third best record in the East. The Spurs have lost two in a row and are endanger of falling to .500 with a loss tonight.

Non-sports pick - 9pm - NBC - The Office - Dwight takes Angela and Andy to Schrute farms. Here's hoping there's a small part for former blogger of Fire Joe Morgan Michael Schur as Mose Schrute.
