Stumped on what to watch this week? We got you covered. Here is your guide to the best in sports, music, movies, and tv for the coming week.

Warriors vs. Spurs 9:30pm EST, TNT This series becomes immediately more interesting due to the injury to OKC guard Russell Westbrook. Stephen Curry shot the lights out in the first series (.468 FG%/.424 3p%/1.000 FT%). Can he continue it against the far stingier Spurs defense?

If you’re a Lakers fans, don’t worry, Magic Johnson will be on The Tonight Show, presumably to talk about the Lakers demise.

Canadiens vs. Senators 7:00pm EST, CNBC- A hockey game broke out during this fighting series. This should be playoff hockey at its best.

Blues vs. Kings – This series returns to St. Louis for  game five.

Bill Simmons will visit his old chum Jimmy Kimmel for an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Blue Jays vs. Rays 7:10pm EST – The two 2012 CY Young award winners, R.A. Dickey and David Price face off on the mound.

Also the documentary Venus and Serena is coming out. It looks to be pretty fantastic.
