What To Watch: Thursday

7pm ET - ESPN - #14 Vanderbilt @ #7 Tennessee - Vandy and Tennessee are in the top 15? Talk to me at the end of the season.

7pm - ESPN2 - #13 Marquette @ Louisville
- Marquette has won nine of it's last ten games and has started 3-1 in the Big East for the first time ever (yeah, it just joined the Big East in 2005). But, Louisville has won seven of their last eight, despite major injury problems. Louisville is getting healthy again and looks to be a contender in the Big East.

8pm - TNT - Cavaliers @ Spurs - The Cavs face the Spurs for the first time since being swept by them in the NBA Finals. LeBron James is coming off a 51-point game, but playing a Spurs team that is a league best 19-3 at home this season. Maybe Larry Hughes will decide to play defense against Tony Parker, but then again, maybe not.

10:30pm - TNT - Suns @ Lakers - The Lakers have the best record in the West. I have to say this while it's still true, because most likely that will never happen again this season. Without Andrew Bynum, Amare Stoudemire should be able to dominate the Lakers and unless Kobe is on fire, it will be difficult for the Lakers to keep up with the Suns.
