Tipping off on the hardwood . . .

There are 11 games on the NBA hardwood on Friday night, including Detroit at Cleveland. The Pistons and Cavaliers haven’t met since November 25, when LeBron James and company pulled out a 98-88 road win. James led the way with 34 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists for the Cavaliers in that contest, while Mo Williams had 14 points to go along with eight assists. Rodney Stuckey had 25 points in the loss for the Pistons, while Charlie Villanueva had 19 points.

Also on the NBA’s schedule for Friday: the Lakers at Charlotte, Milwaukee at Washington, Boston at Philadelphia, Golden State at Atlanta, Orlando at New Jersey, Sacramento at Dallas, Indiana at Denver, New Orleans at San Antonio, Oklahoma City at the Clippers, and New York at Toronto. The Raptors hope that star forward Chris Bosh (ankle injury) can get back on the floor for Friday night; Toronto has lost four straight games to sit at 31-28 SU and 28-31 ATS this year.

Mid-major tournament games populate the college basketball schedule for Friday, along with one major-conference game between St. John’s and DePaul at Allstate Arena. The Red Storm (15-14 SU, 12-14 ATS) have lost three straight games, falling 85-66 to Syracuse in their last outing on Tuesday. The Blue Demons (8-21 SU, 14-9-2 ATS) have lost 11 games in a row to sit in the basement of the Big East standings. DePaul lost 63-59 to South Florida in their last contest, and they also fell 67-47 when they played St. John’s on January 17.

Taking a trip around the rink . . .

As well, there are five games on the National Hockey League schedule for Friday, with Philadelphia at Buffalo, Vancouver at Chicago, New Jersey at Calgary, Minnesota at Edmonton, and Nashville at Detroit. The Red Wings last hosted the Predators back on January 29, with Detroit pulling out the 4-2 home win. Jason Williams, Nicklas Lidstrom, Drew Miller, and Henrik Zetterberg all scored for the Wings in that contest, while Jimmy Howard stopped 46 of 48 Nashville shots. Francis Bouillon and Shea Weber had the Preds goals in the loss.
