Sports and televisions were invented for one another. Here, we at SB Nation pore through the TV schedule for Tuesday, Dec. 14, and select for you the finest in sports television consumption. All times Eastern.
9 p.m., NBA TV - Magic at Nuggets. The Magic are off to a 16-8 start, which, given their payroll, is perceived by some to be disappointing. However, Orlando Pinstriped Post argues that this squad is reminiscent of the 2008-09 Magic team that reached the Finals.
7 p.m., ESPNU - Oakland at No. 7 Tennessee. Days ago, the Oakland Golden Grizzlies came within a point of scoring a major upset of Michigan State, and Rocky Talk Top knows this team isn't one to overlook, pointing out that Oakland is slightly superior to Tennessee in a few departments.
8 p.m., ESPNU - Drexel at No. 20 Louisville. At 8-0, the Cardinals are off to their best start since Rick Pitino came to town. With the team's next marquee match-up weeks away, Card Chronicle is figuring out what to make of the report that Pitino will coach the Puerto Rico national team.
7 p.m., Versus - Penguins at Flyers. PensBurgh is pleased to learn that Evgeni Malkin should be back in the lineup tonight. Meanwhile, Broad Street Hockey reports that at this juncture, the Flyers are effectively broke.
