What we're watching: The playoffs are heating up, as the Heat start from scratch against the suddenly-competitive Chicago Bulls and Phoenix tries to avoid an early exit against the seventh-seeded LA Lakers. Also not to be forgotten are new episodes of Veronica Mars, Law & Order SVU and The Unit, among others.

Definitely looks like an NBA night, we have to see if the MVP will step up under adversity or fade away.
