The NBA gives fans the gift of star-studded basketball each Christmas Day. After making coffee and opening presents (in that order), you can settle in for five NBA games. After the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors kicked things off on ESPN and another Eastern Conference battle between the Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers took place on ABC, it’s time for one of the highlights of the day: the second battle of Los Angeles.
After equally impressive offseasons reshaped both rosters, the Clippers and Lakers meet again in primetime. The Clippers took the first round with 112-102 win on opening night, but the Lakers have been the better team since, taking the top spot in the Western Conference. LeBron James and Anthony Davis versus Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. This is what holiday basketball is for.Â
The Clippers-Lakers game is set to tip-off at 8 p.m. ET in the Staples Center. Here’s the schedule for the NBA’s full slate of remaining Christmas Day games:
