What To Watch: Thursday

 

7pm ET - ESPN - Boston College @ #4 North Carolina - Watch the explosive Tar Heels dismantle BC.

8pm - TNT - Mavericks @ Celtics
- This match-up is much less intriguing without Garnett and Allen in the lineup for the Celtics. A win would make a big statement, but a loss wouldn't mean much.

9pm - ESPN - #11 Indiana @ #13 Wisconsin - Both teams are coming off losses to unranked opponents. The Hoosiers lost the UConn and the Badgers lost to Purdue on Saturday. Prior to those losses both teams had double-digit winning streaks. Indiana is the only undefeated team in Big Ten play, but there are three other teams with just one loss - including Wisconsin.

9pm - ESPN - North Carolina State @ #3 Duke
- The last time these two teams played, NC State knocked the Blue Devils out of the ACC Tournament. Duke went on to lose in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. But, this year should be a different story. Duke is the only ACC team undefeated in conference play and have won all nine home games by an average of nearly 30 points per game.

10:30pm - TNT - Spurs @ Suns - The Spurs look to avoid their first four game losing streak in nearly four years, but will face the Suns who have won seven of their past eight games. The Spurs are currently sixth in the West and are just 1.5 games ahead of the eighth seed.

Non-sports pick - 9pm - ABC - Lost "The Beginning Of The End"
- Finally some new episodes and two hours no less. So, how much more confusing will it be after these two hours? I expect, much more.
