Hello!  This weekend features numerous sports!  If I were you I’d watch some of them.  What ones, you ask?  These ones!

Friday March 6, 2020

Milwaukee Bucks at Los Angeles Lakers

  • What: NBA Basketball
  • Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles California
  • When: 9:30 p.m. CST
  • Why:  This is very possibly a NBA Finals preview.  The Bucks are on pace for over 70 wins, and would become just the third team to hit that mark.  They have the best scoring differential in modern NBA history, Giannis is an athlete unlike anything seen not just in the NBA, but in known history, he is going to be back-to-back MVP, and every Bucks player on the roster is better than a year ago.  And yet this is LeBron, and he is teamed with Anthony Davis, and Giannis knows it, and that’s why he dismantled this very team in December.  Can he do it again?

Seton Hall vs. Creighton

  • What: College Basketball
  • Where: CHI Health Center, Omaha Nebraska
  • When: 1:30 p.m. CST
  • Why:  Seton Hall is no. 8, Creighton is no. 11, and you are a racist?
  • How:  FOX

Philadelphia 76ers at Golden State Warriors

  • What: NBA Basketball
  • Where: Chase Center, San Francisco California
  • When: 7:30 p.m. CST
  • Why: Curry is back?  I don’t know, maybe you shouldn’t.
  • How:  ABC

UFC 248: Adesanya v. Romero

  • What: Mixed Martial Arts
  • Where: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas Nevada
  • When: 7:00 p.m. CST prelims, 9:00 CST Main Card
  • Why: Challenger and former interim champion Yoel Romero has one of the most incredible physiques in the history of mankind, and the athleticism to match.  But he is pretty old now, and Israel Adesanya is a creative, flexible, devastating, one of a kind striker who will likely knock him silly.
  • How:  ABC

Oklahoma Thunder at Boston Celtics

  • What: NBA Basketball
  • Where:  TD Garden, Boston MA
  • When: 5:00 p.m. CST
  • Why: Both teams are fighting for playoff position, with the Thunder holding on to 6th in the West, and Boston currently with the lead for the third seed in the East, with an outside chance at the second seed.  Jason Tatum is on an unreal tear that has the whole league on notice.  Chris Paul is still really good and also an unbelievable jerk.
  • How:  NBA TV

Michigan at Maryland, Ohio State at Michigan State, Iowa at Illinois

  • What: College Basketball
  • Where: Various and Sundry
