If you're one of those who loves to hate LeBron James (and who outside of Miami doesn't), here's your chance to root against them and hope that the New York Knicks can break the Heat's ten-game winning streak. (On second thought, it might be hard for Chicagoans to root for a New York team.) Also, the Blackhawks face their division rivals from Detroit.â†µâ†µ
6 p.m., ESPN: NBA, Heat at Knicks.â†µâ†µ

7:30 p.m., CSN Chicago: NHL, Blackhawks vs. Red Wings at the United Center. Before the game, the Hawks are honoring Chicago native and ex-Hawk Chris Chelios, who won a Stanley Cup... with the Wings. Strange days.â†µâ†µ
