Confusing the Zions
If you'd like to tweet your condolences to Zion Williamson on his knee injury, his handle is @ZionW32 on Twitter. @ZionNPS, on the other hand, is the official Twitter account of Zion National Park, home of the stunning Zion Canyon and the setting for the "Honest Hearts" expansion in "Fallout: New Vegas." Carlos Boozer made that mistake and the @NatlParkService seized the opportunity. Isn't it nice when Twitter is like this? Read More

Duke could be a powerhouse in the NCAA tournament with even an injured Zion, but is that enough of a justification for him to risk his future NBA earnings? Our panel debates. Read More

Remember When?
On Feb. 22, 1980, an American ice hockey squad consisting of mostly college players faced off against a Soviet team that had won five of the previous six Olympic hockey gold medals. Down 3-2 in the third period, the host Americans scored two goals to complete the "Miracle on Ice" and would eventually win gold over Finland. To mark the occasion, head to ESPN+ for our 30 for 30, which offers a fresh perspective on the historic game. Watch
What's on tonight?
Spurs at Raptors (7 p.m. ET, ESPN):
DeMar DeRozan returns home for the first time since the offseason deal that sent him to San Antonio. The Spurs won their first meeting with the Raptors 125-107, but they went into the All-Star break on a 1-4 mini-skid; the Raptors, on the other hand, have won six straight.
Jazz at Thunder (9:30 p.m. ET, ESPN):
Paul George looks to start the second half of his dark horse MVP candidacy with a bang as the Thunder welcome the Jazz to Oklahoma City. A win here for Utah would go a long way toward protecting its place in the West's playoff picture -- those last five spots are going to be heavily contested.
Shanghai Dragons vs. Boston Uprising (10 p.m. ET, ESPN3):
Season 1 of the Overwatch League saw the Shanghai Dragons go 0-40, which is the longest losing streak in professional sports. They're 0-2 so far in Season 2 but have looked far better than the last time around. Part of that could be due to the addition of star main tank Noh "Gamsu" Young-jin, whom the Dragons acquired in a surprise trade two days before the season started ... from the Uprising, whom they play tonight.
