This will be a special one for Mississauga native Andrew Nicholson. It is always a big deal when a Canadian comes back to play at the ACC. As Nicholson grew up playing ball in the GTA, look for him to have a big game in front of the Toronto crowd.

Cleveland Cavaliers at New York Knicks (8:00pm EST) (TSN)

Anthony Bennett and Tristan Thompson will be visiting MSG to battle the Knicks. This should be a great opportunity for TT to have a great scoring night.

Milwaukee Bucks at Orlando Magic (7:00pm EST)

Andrew Nicholson and the Magic host the Bucks Friday night in Orlando.

Sacramento Kings at Dallas Mavericks (8:30pm EST)
