We’re heading into a very exciting time of the NBA regular season schedule. While there are no games on Christmas Eve (Monday), there will be five gifts underneath the basketball tree on Christmas Day, starting at noon, with five nationally-televised games.
In the mid-afternoon game featuring the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers, we’ll get a matchup between the league’s top two scorers in Carmelo Anthony and Kobe Bryant. It’s the first time in 35 years we get to see the top two scorers go head-to-head on the holiday. That’s a very nice matchup.
