Toronto Sports Media Game of the Night


Boston Celtics (19-4, 9-3 road) vs New York Knicks (16-9, 6-5 home) @ Madison Square Garden on ESPN, 7:00 PM ET

Line: BOS by 4.5

Total: 204

Reason To Watch: Lots of great basketball on this evening. The Celtics and Spurs, despite being lead by NBA veterans are dominating the league right now. The new look Knicks will have a tough test tonight, but the editions of A’mare Stodumire and Raymond Felton are one of the big reasons why the NBA is relevant in NYC again.  

Chicago Bulls (15-8, 5-6 away) vs Toronto Raptors (9-16, 6-6 home) @ Air Canada Centre on TSN2, 7:00 PM ET

Line: CHI by 5.5

Total: 202

Reason To Watch: Just when things were starting to look good, they turn for the worse. Bulls PG and MVP candidate Derrick Rose will be back tonight, while PF Carlos Boozer has returned to the court and has transitioned beautifully into the Bulls system. The Bulls are a good team without Boozer, but a top 3 team with him (along with Boston and Orlando or Miami).

Cleveland Cavaliers (7-17, 3-10 away) vs Miami Heat (18-8, 11-3 home) @ American Airlines Arena on Sun Sports, 7:30 PM ET

Line: MIA by 16.5

Total: 193.5

Reason To Watch: The Miami Heat go for their 10th straight victory over LeBron’s old boy’s. LeBron and Wade have really started to click and this team is unstoppable in transition. Even Chris Bosh is starting to play well averaging 17 points over the last 10. It seems as if LeBron and Wade are the Winklevoss twins (from Social Network flick, if you haven’t seen it. Pretty good movie) then Bosh is their sidekick Divya Narendra.
