Olympic hockey was the show in the middle of the night.
Will Tuesday night’s home game against the Boston Celtics be the last stand for James Harden with the Nets? And will the Knicks figure something out in Denver? We’ve got a couple NBA games to watch tonight.
Here’s what we’re watching tonight:
- NHL: Devils @ Canadiens — 7 PM ET
- NBA: Celtics @ Nets — 7:30 PM ET
- NBA: Knicks @ Nuggets — 9 PM ET
- CBB: #24 Marquette @ #17 UConn — 6:30 PM ET
- CBB: #11 Wisconsin @ #13 Michigan State — 7 PM ET
- Winter Olympics
All that Jazz
The Knicks went to Utah on Monday night and Mitchell Robinson put on a show. He scored 19 points and added 21 rebounds, but the Knicks lost 113-104. Julius Randle led the way with 30 points but still had the worst plus-minus (minus-3) in the Knicks’ starting five.

Late Monday night/early Tuesday morning, the United States and Canada took the ice in the women’s hockey tournament at the Winter Olympics. The two heavyweights will likely see each other again before the hardware is distributed. These are always great games, and the hype for this one was legit.

Canada played a brilliant game and won 4-2. We look forward to these two meeting again in this tournament.

7 straight L’s
The Devils suffered their seventh straight loss on Monday night. While the result wasn’t good, what impressed us was the postgame comments from the Devils’ 23-year-old captain, Nico Hischier.
"It’s frustrating for sure. Nobody wants to be where we are at. We know it. It’s on us.”

Stroman taking shots
Former Mets starter Marcus Stroman had some strong words about MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred. And… we’re struggling to see where he’s wrong.

Speaking of Manfred’s office, apparently MLB has stopped testing players for steroids. I mean, if it can get Bud Selig into the Hall of Fame, why not… right?
APNewsBreak: Major League Baseball has stopped testing players for steroids for the first time in nearly 20 years due to the expiration of the sport’s drug agreement.
