Sure Not Now

Miami Heat at Charlotte Hornets (7:00 p.m.)

What to watch: Miles Bridges

You're going to want to keep an eye on Miles Bridges all season long.

In 28 minutes of action against the Boston Celtics on Sunday, the rookie scored a game-high 23 points on 9-for-12 shooting from the field. He also grabbed six rebounds, dished out two assists and had one highlight block on Terry Rozier in the close loss.

In the hopes that he can become a staple in Charlotte's rotation this season, expect Bridges to continue making the most of his opportunities as the preseason progresses.

Cleveland Cavaliers at Boston Celtics (8:00 p.m. on NBATV Canada)

What to watch: Collin Sexton's NBA debut

Could this be the start of Collin Sexton's Rookie of the Year campaign?

Now that LeBron James is no longer in Cleveland, there will be plenty of opportunities for Sexton to prove himself as one of the best prospects in the 2018 NBA Draft class.

It'll be important for Sexton to get on the same page as Kevin Love from the get-go, as the five-time All-Star signed a four-year extension to stay with the Cavaliers this offseason.

Memphis Grizzlies at Houston Rockets (8:00 p.m.)

What to watch: Carmelo Anthony's debut with the Rockets

Much has been made of Houston's bizarre offseason, and tonight will be the first time we get to see their new acquisitions on the court.

The most intriguing of them all? Carmelo Anthony.

Anthony has all the tools to help a team that came within a game of making the NBA Finals last season, but he's coming off of the worst season of his Hall of Fame-worthy career.

It'll be fascinating to see how he bounces back from his short time with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Toronto Raptors at Utah Jazz (9:00 p.m. on Sportsnet ONE)

What to watch: How Kawhi Leonard looks in his second game

Having last played in an NBA game on Jan. 13, Kawhi Leonard performed as well as anyone could've expected in his preseason debut over the weekend when he logged 19 minutes and scored 12 points in a win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Raptors fans can only hope for more of the same tonight when Toronto travels to Utah to play the Jazz.

Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Lakers (10:30 p.m. on NBATV Canada)

What to watch: The Lakers' center rotation

The center position is going to be one to watch all season long for the Lakers.

While Los Angeles started a traditional big man in JaVale McGee over the weekend, the likes of LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram each spent time at center in the team's preseason opener.

The Lakers have talked about how their plan is to have long wings who can play multiple positions and switch on defence, but matchups like this - against a talented 7-footer in Nikola Jokic - could put their lack of depth in the frontcourt on full display.
