Keeping an eye on Reno-RGV tonight

Should be an interesting matchup tonight as Reno and Rio Grande Valley square off in the D-League's only game of the night (8:30 ET). Both teams play a direct role in Tulsa's future. Reno is the destination for the 66ers right after Christmas for the first of five visits to the Bighorns (no, Reno doesn't come to Tulsa ... a scheduling quirk that's disappointing) for back-to-back games. Rio Grande Valley, 2-2 against Tulsa this year, is still one of the class teams of the West and doesn't face the 66ers again until mid-March.

Reno is right behind 6-5 Tulsa in the standings at 4-4 so a Bighorn win would push Reno just ahead of the 66ers. Rio Grande Valley, however, is 3-0 at home this season.
