Hello everyone! This is a busy 14-game night in the league, including two nationally televised games on NBA-TV. Let’s take a look at where we can see some of our former University of Kentucky Wildcats playing in the NBA.
7:00pm ET on NBA League Pass: Chicago Bulls (14-14) at Charlotte Hornets (16-13). Aaron Harrison is with the Greensboro Swarm right now, but Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Rajon Rondo will play in this game. These two teams are fighting for spots in the playoffs.
7:00pm ET on NBA League Pass: Los Angeles Lakers (11-21) at Orlando Magic (13-18). Julius Randle and his fiancée welcomed a son this morning, so Randle will miss tonight’s game. Jodie Meeks has returned to the team after the death of his grandmother, and Meeks will be available to play tonight.
7:30pm ET on NBA-TV: Oklahoma City Thunder (17-12) at Boston Celtics (17-12). James Young has not played in the last five games for the Celtics, so don’t count on seeing him, but Enes Kanter will play.
7:30pm ET on NBA League Pass: Brooklyn Nets (7-21) at Cleveland Cavaliers (21-6). DeAndre Liggins is listed as a probable starter in the game notes for tonight. This is one of the most lop-sided matchups you will see in the entire league.
8:00pm ET on NBA League Pass: Washington Wizards (13-15) at Milwaukee Bucks (13-14). John Wall’s Wizards pull in to face the Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Bucks.
8:00pm ET on NBA League Pass: Houston Rockets (22-8) at Memphis Grizzlies (19-12). We could see Kyle Wiltjer tonight, as well as Andrew Harrison.
8:00pm ET on NBA League Pass: Miami Heat (10-20) at New Orleans Pelicans (10-21). Both of these teams are struggling, but the Heat played last night, so the Pels have an advantage. We’ll see Anthony Davis and Terrence Jones.
8:00pm ET on NBA League Pass: Sacramento Kings (12-17) at Minnesota Timberwolves (9-19). Skal Labissiere is with the D-League’s Reno Bighorns right now, so we won’t see him, but we will see DeMarcus Cousins, Willie Cauley-Stein and Karl-Anthony Towns. This is my pick for game of the night. Should be good!
9:00pm ET on NBA League Pass: Atlanta Hawks (14-15) at Denver Nuggets (12-17). Dwight Howard and Tim Hardaway Jr. are both out for the Hawks, so Jamal Murray’s Nuggets have a little less hill to climb tonight.
9:00pm ET on NBA League Pass: Toronto Raptors (20-8) at Utah Jazz (18-12). Dwane Casey brings Patrick Patterson and the Raptors to face Trey Lyles and the Jazz.
9:00pm ET on NBA League Pass: Philadelphia 76ers (7-21) at Phoenix Suns (8-21). These are two energetic young teams who are trying to find their identities. We’ll see Eric Bledsoe, Devin Booker, Brandon Knight and Tyler Ulis in this one.
So there you have it, a look at where we could see some of our former Cats tonight. Enjoy!
