Hello everyone! It’s time to take a look at tonight’s NBA schedule to find our former Kentucky Wildcats. There are two nationally televised games on NBA-TV, but only one will feature a former Cat. Let’s take a look at what awaits us this evening.
7:00pm ET on NBA League Pass: Charlotte Hornets at Indiana Pacers. Aaron Harrison is back in the D-League with the Greensboro Swarm for now, but Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will be starting for the Hornets, and Kemba Walker is probable as well according to the Hornets’ game notes.
7:30pm ET on NBA-TV: Washington Wizards at Miami Heat. John Wall’s Wizards are really having a tough season this time around, and they face a strong Miami team that’s not having a good showing either, but they’ve got young talent & a star center in Hassan Whiteside.
7:30pm ET on NBA League Pass: Milwaukee Bucks at Toronto Raptors. Dwane Casey brings Patrick Patterson, Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan out to battle with the Bucks tonight in Toronto.
8:00pm ET on NBA League Pass: Brooklyn Nets at Houston Rockets. Kyle Wiltjer is back in the D-League with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers for now, so there will be no former Cats in this one.
8:30pm ET on NBA League Pass: Denver Nuggets at Dallas Mavericks. Jamal Murray continues to improve with the Nuggets. Both of these teams have unfortunate records (9-15 and 5-18 respectively), and the Mavs have had multiple starters out lately due to injuries.
10:30pm ET on NBA-TV: Portland Trail Blazers at Los Angeles Clippers. No former Cats in this one.
10:30pm ET on NBA League Pass: Los Angeles Lakers at Sacramento Kings. This is my pick for game of the night: Julius Randle going up against DeMarcus Cousins and Willie Cauley-Stein. (Skal Labissiere is back in the D-League with the Reno Bighorns right now.) Last time the Lakers came to town, there were some postgame antics between Cousins & Randle. Lakers vs Kings is a big rivalry, so expect the Golden 1 Center to be rocking tonight.
There you have it, a review of where you could see our former Kentucky Wildcats in the NBA tonight. Enjoy!
