What to Watch: Thursday

by Robbie Gillies

12pm ET - CBS - NCAA TOURNAMENT - Pretty much all day long. The first chunk is from 12pm-5pm, and the second from 7pm-10pm. But don't restrict yourself to the game in your market. Watch online and pick the best games or the most important to you. After all, it's your Christmas.

7pm - ESPN2 - NIT: New Mexico @ Notre Dame - The winner advances to the elite eight...of the NIT.

8pm - TNT – NBA: Blazers @ Cavaliers - The Cavs are much unbeatable at home (except for that loss to the Lakers).

9pm - ESPN2 - MLS: Red Bull New York @ Seattle Sounders - Hey, at least Seattle has a soccer team.

9pm - ESPN - WBC: Japan vs. Korea - The winner takes the pool and plays the US in the semis. The loser plays Venezuela in the other semifinal match.

10:30pm – NBA: TNT - Warriors @ Lakers - After this game, the Lakers hit the road for over two weeks. Better win at home while they can.

Non-sports pick: The Office and 30 Rock - Record these for later, when you’re not watching gratuitous amounts of basketball.
