What to Watch: Thursday

7pm ET - ESPN – NCAA Basketball: West Virginia at #12 Georgetown - The Hoyas have won 12 of their last 15 against West Virginia.

7pm - ESPN2 – NCAA Basketball: #18 Purdue at #21 Minnesota - Purdue is built on defense and forcing turnovers, and the Gofers turned the ball over 19 times in their most recent loss to Northwestern.

8pm - TNT – NBA: Celtics at Magic - In the first meeting the Celtics destroyed the Magic, 107-88, but that was in Boston. Now the Magic have a chance to settle the score and hold onto the best winning percentage in the Eastern Conference.

9pm - ESPN - Winter X Games - Snowboard Big Air Final is among the events that will be televised.

9pm - ESPN2 – NCAA Basketball: Saint Mary's at San Diego - Saint Mary's sits just outside the top 25 in the AP poll. A win over San Diego would get them ranked at 18-1 just before their showdown with Gonzaga next Thursday.

10:30pm - TNT – NBA: Wizards at Lakers - The Lakers’ big men should have a field day with the depleted Wizards' frontcourt.

Non-sports pick - 12am - ABC - Jimmy Kimmel Live - If there's any chance Ron Howard talks about Arrested Development the movie, it'll be worth watching. He's currently attached to direct the movie.
