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, the action shifts to the West.

This year’s matchup should be a bit different than the battles the two clubs had in recent years, with the injury-plagued Warriors among the worst teams in the league and the Rockets still looking real good (especially after rallying to beat the Clippers last week).

The Rockets-Warriors game is set to tip-off at 5 p.m. ET in San Francisco. Here’s the schedule for the NBA’s full slate of remaining Christmas Day games:
