What does the NBA have for you under the Christmas tree this weekend? The biggest regular-season matchup of the year.
Actually, Christmas Day features five
NBA games with some major star-power. However, the crown jewel of the day has to be a rematch of last year's NBA Finals; the Golden State Warriors at the Cleveland Cavaliers. As you'll undoubtedly recall (if you don't it's time to reevaluate your life), the Cavaliers overcame a 3-1 Finals deficit to win Cleveland's first major sports championship in 52 years
. Both squads are playing big-boy basketball again this year, each carrying the best record in their respective conferences
. We can only hope that when these two goliaths clash again sparks will fly, hopefully in the form of J.R. Smith playing without a shirt
or Draymond Green kicking everyone in the dick
Here's the full slate of games (Eastern Time):
Boston Celtics @ New York Knicks - 12pm on ESPN
Golden State Warriors @ Cleveland Cavaliers - 2:30pm on ABC
Chicago Bulls @ San Antonio Spurs - 5pm on ABC
Minnesota Timberwolves @ Oklahoma City Thunder - 8pm on ESPN
Los Angeles Clippers @ Los Angeles Lakers - 10:30pm on ESPN
Christmas dinner with the rest of the family? Sorry, mom, I got shit to watch.
