To celebrate the league’s upcoming 2019 Christmas day fixtures, the NBA has shared a festive spot that features multi-platinum performing artist Normani singing a reimagined basketball rendition of the classic holiday song, “Winter Wonderland.”

Aptly dubbed “Ballin’ in a Christmas Wonderland,” the 30-second spot highlights the forthcoming matches with prior games being edited to look a whole lot more festive for the holiday spirit. Additionally the spot features players from the five Christmas Day matchups, including LeBron James (LA Lakers), Kemba Walker (Boston Celtics), Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks), Brandon Ingram (New Orleans Pelicans), Kawhi Leonard (LA Clippers), Nikola Jokić (Denver Nuggets), Pascal Siakam (Toronto Raptors), Joel Embiid (Philadelphia 76ers), James Harden (Houston Rockets), Russell Westbrook (Houston Rockets), D’Angelo Russell (Golden State Warriors), and Anthony Davis (LA Lakers).

Watch the commercial above and check out the full schedule for Christmas day below.

Milwaukee Bucks @ Philadelphia 76ers (2:30 p.m. ET, ABC)
Houston Rockets @ Golden State Warriors (5 p.m. ET, ABC)
