Default NBA on Christmas Day Discussion Thread

CHI@NYK 12 PM- The return of Kurt Thomas to NY is the biggest storyline here. But seriously, should be a great start to the day with 2 young up and coming teams who are currently just on the outside looking in in terms of being a top team in the East, with CHI being a little closer than NY obviously. But this game looks a lot better now with NY playing great than it did when it was first announced in the summer. Should be another great game at the Garden, as theyve had many these past 2 weeks.

BOS@ORL 230 PM- Boston has a 14(?) game winning streak on the line, and ORL is coming off a huge win vs the best team record wise in the NBA. Clash of 2 teams that are on a big high right now. Still gotta go with the Celts though. Shaq vs Howard should be something to watch as Shaq always likes to play big on national TV, and with the shit hes talked about Dwight these past couple years, it should be a very good matchup.

MIA@LAL 5 PM- Theres not much else that can be said that hasnt already been said. It's going to be the most watched NBA game probably ever. The thing I'll be looking for like a lot of people is if Miami can slow down LA's size. If they can keep them in check then LA is going to have a big problem, but I doubt thats going to happen. Too much size and skill.

DEN@OKC 8PM- Assuming Melo plays, his matchups vs Durant have been one of the best matchups in the league to watch since Durants rookie year as I beleive Melo has hit 3 game winning shots vs SEA/OKC and every game seems to go down to the wire.

POR@GSW 1030 PM- There isnt really a lot of reason to watch this game unless yourre a big Steph Curry fan as he'll be back tomorrow. POR is getting up there with the Bobcats and DET as being nearly unwatchable especially without BRoy
