What To Watch: Thursday

7pm ET - ESPN - Pittsburgh @ #21 Notre Dame - Pitt has a five game winning streak against Notre Dame, but the two haven't met since January 2006 and Notre Dame has won 34 straight at home.

8pm - TNT - Heat @ Rockets - Both teams head into this game with 9 game streaks. The Rockets have won 9 straight while the Heat... well, the Heat are looking forward to next year.

9pm - ESPN2 - Michigan @ Minnesota - A real powerhouse match-up here. The two teams are a combined 9-16 in the Big 10. Well, I guess ESPN gets a game like this and then they get a game like Tennessee/Memphis.

9pm - ESPN - High-School Basketball - American Christian vs. St. Anthony - They just released the McDonald's All-Americans. St. Anthony has Michael Rosario who has committed to Rutgers and American Christian has Tyreke Evans who is still undecided. Tyreke is widely considered the top prospect from this year. But he comes with some baggage.

10:30pm - TNT - Sonics @ Trail Blazers - Portland has lost five straight and is now five games out of the playoffs in the West. Seattle has won 5 of 8, but might be without Kevin Durant, who missed the Sonics' last game with the flu. Who will replace his 8 for 25 shooting?

Non-sports pick - 8pm - National Geographic - Science Of Steroids - I'm guessing Roger Clemens will not have a guest spot.

Non-sports pick #2 - 9pm - ABC - LOST - If you have not watched this show yet go buy seasons 1-3 on DVD. I watched all of seasons 1 and 2 in one week back in 2006.
