Lebron James & the Lakers will face the Warriors in Oakland on Christmas Day.
Besides the quality time spent with family and the presents we receive, one of the best parts about Christmas Day for sports lovers is the stacked lineup of NBA Games that are on all day long, and this year is no different. On Tuesday night, the schedule for this year’s Christmas day leaked online ahead of tomorrow’s official announcement, and we’re in for another treat.
To kick off the day will be the Milwaukee Bucks & the New York Knicks who will battle it out in the Garden in NYC, before two of the East’s best teams will face off in Boston Celtics & Philadelphia 76ers. In addition to that, The Houston Rockets will host the Oklahoma City Thunder for the third game of the day, while the Jazz & Blazers will close out the night out West in what should be two playoff teams going at it. However the main attraction of the day will be without a doubt the Lebon James-led Lakers going up to Oakland to play Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena.
For the third year in a row, LeBron will be taking on the Warriors on Christmas Day, with both teams winning one game so far. However with this year being at Oracle, the Warriors will definitely be big favorites going into the game.
