Today in the Daily Sports Roundup: The Penguins play host to the Sabres, Vanderbilt takes on Florida, and the Celtics look to bounce back against Detroit.

Tipping off on the hardwood . . .

There are just four games on the NBA schedule for Tuesday, with Golden State at Miami, Sacramento at Oklahoma City, Indiana at the Lakers, and Boston at Detroit. The Celtics (36-21 SU, 21-35-1 ATS) were embarrassed in a loss to the lowly Nets on Saturday, falling 104-96 at home. Kevin Garnett had 26 points for Boston in that contest, while Marquis Daniels was good for 16 points. The Pistons (21-38 SU, 25-31-3 ATS) were beaten 95-88 by Golden State in their last game on Saturday; Tayshaun Prince tossed in 18 points for Detroit in that defeat.

Notable games on the college basketball schedule for Tuesday include St. John’s at Syracuse, Villanova at Cincinnati, Baylor at Texas Tech, Illinois at Ohio State, and CSU Bakersfield at Gonzaga. As well, Vanderbilt will be looking to pick up a win over Florida at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center. The Commodores (22-6 SU, 14-12 ATS) had no trouble with Arkansas in their last game, winning 89-72; Jeffery Taylor had 18 points for Vanderbilt in that contest. The Gators (20-9 SU, 13-11 ATS) fell 78-76 to Georgia last game, despite Chandler Parsons’ 29 points.

Taking a trip around the rink . . .

The National Hockey League offers up a dozen games on Tuesday, including Buffalo at Pittsburgh. The 33-18-9 Sabres entered the Olympic break on a skid, going just 3-5-2 in their past 10 games. That stretch cost Buffalo the lead in the Northeast Division standings – they trail the Ottawa Senators by one point. The 36-22-4 Penguins also sit in second place in their division right now – they trail the New Jersey Devils by one point in the Atlantic. Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby scored the Olympic-winning goal for Canada against the USA on Sunday.

Also on the ice on Tuesday: Montreal at Boston, Florida at Atlanta, Carolina at Toronto, Vancouver at Columbus, Chicago at the Islanders, the Rangers at Ottawa, Philadelphia at Tampa Bay, Edmonton at Nashville, Los Angeles at Dallas, St. Louis at Phoenix, and New Jersey at San Jose. The 40-13-9 Sharks entered the break with the highest point total in the Western Conference, but they fell 3-1 in Buffalo in their last outing on February 13. The 37-21-3 Devils are only 3-5-2 in their past 10 games, and they lost 5-2 to Carolina in their last matchup.
