One of the NBA‘s biggest nights is slated to bring in some of the greatest matches for fans’ entertainment later this year.
The Athletic‘s own Shams Charania has reported that the NBA has revealed its list of Christmas Day matchups, listing some of the most anticipated teams of the season to play ball. The East is expected to cause a lot of buzz with will see the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics battle it out. Both teams prove to be hungry for the championship, especially after coming off of the previous season as one of the top contenders in the East. The match will be one step closer for both teams to prove that they are the better green team in the league. Not to be missed is the Philadelphia 76ers facing off against the New York Knicks. With the noise surrounding a potential James Harden and Kevin Durant reunion, it remains to be seen if the duo will join forces once again, playing for the same team.
The West will feature three major gams, with the Denver Nuggets hosting the Phoenix Suns and LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers playing against Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks. Perhaps one of the most anticipated matches will be the Golden State Warriors and Memphis Grizzlies going toe-to-toe.
Take a look below at the announcement.
