Don’t have tickets to see Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder play the Jazz at EnergySolutions Arena tonight?
The game is on ROOT Sports at 7 p.m., when the Jazz will try to follow-up their takedown of the Los Angeles Lakers by knocking off another of the best teams in the NBA. The Thunder have the league’s second-best record at 34-11 — Durant averages 27.7 points per game — while the 23-22 Jazz have won four of their last five games and watched some of their promising young players really step forward.
Beyond that, college basketball fans can watch Pac-12 rivals Oregon and Washington square off in a quarterfinal of the men’s NIT at 7 p.m. on ESPN, while second round of the women’s NCAA Tournament gets all-night coverage on ESPN2.
Perhaps most intriguingly, the Florida Gators try to take down the No. 1 and unbeaten Baylor Bears, though ESPN2 has not specified whether that game or one of three others will be primarily broadcast at 5 p.m.
Hockey fans will want to catch the Phoenix Coyotes and Dallas Stars at 6 on the NBC Sports Network (formerly Versus), in a clash of the co-leaders of the NHL’s Pacific Division. The next two teams in the standings — San Jose and Los Angeles — square off after that, also on NBC Sports Network.
