The Best Christmas Present For NBA Fans

Every Christmas presents are opened and families come together. For NBA fans, however, they get another present later on in the day with all the high-octane Christmas day matchups.

Last Christmas, NBA fans saw one of the best regular season games in recent memory when the Cleveland Cavaliers completed a 109-108 comeback win over the Golden State Warriors at Quicken Loans Arena.

LeBron James finished with 31 points, 13 rebounds and four assists. He also threw done one of the best dunks of all time which was a huge momentum shifter late in the game.

This game came down to the final seconds and was capped by a Kyrie Irving go-ahead, fadeaway jumper with under five seconds to go.

We will see more of this as the two teams will take the court again on Christmas, today at 3 p.m.

The remainder of the schedule looks like this:

Noon ET: 76ers at Knicks

3 p.m. ET: Cavaliers at Warriors

5:30 p.m. ET: Wizards at Celtics

8 p.m. ET: Rockets at Thunder

10:30 p.m. ET: Lakers at Timberwolves

The three best games are likely the middle ones, starting with the Cavs/Warriors game and finishing with the Rockets/Thunder.

While this is only the regular season and these games do not have any immediate implications, they definitely will be a preview of what the playoffs hold.

The favorite projected finals matchup is Cavs/Warriors. However, the two favorites to take down the Warriors in the Western Conference are the Rockets and Thunder.

For the Eastern Conference, the two favorite teams to take down the Cavs are the Celtics and the Wizards. While the disparity between the two conferences heavily favors the Western Conference, it is not as divided as many thought heading into the season. The Celtics are really making some noise in the East and the Wizards are on the same path.

This surely is a day of basketball NBA fans do not want to miss.
