It’s a great weekend for sports, with key matchups dotting the slate of games across all sports.

In the NBA, Miami will seek to continue to steamroll anyone that comes in their way. The Heat have won 12 in a row, but will meet another scorching team when they host Memphis tonight. The Grizzlies own their own eight-game winning streak. The Heat won’t have much time to rest, though, because they’ll pay a visit to New York and the Knicks on Sunday.

In the college ranks, there will be 16 games featuring ranked teams on Saturday, including a huge showdown between fifth-ranked Miami and third-ranked Duke, which is coming off a road loss to Virginia. Duke will have revenge on its mind after the Hurricanes blew them out by nearly 30 in January.

In the NHL, Montreal has back-to-back games with Pittsburgh and Boston, two teams trying to catch them for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.
