We already have the five games that will make us vibrate in one of the most mythical days of the NBA: Christmas Day. If yesterday we knew two identical meetings, today it is Shams Charania himself Athleticism which completes the list in the absence of the NBA giving official confirmation. These will be the clashes.
- Boston Celtics – Milwaukee Bucks.
- New York Knicks-Philadelphia 76ers.
- Denver Nuggets-Phoenix Suns.
- Dallas Mavericks-Los Angeles Lakers.
- Golden State Warriors-Memphis Grizzlies.
As usual, the day is full of mythical scenarios and great teams. It will begin at Boston Garden, the court where the Celtics, current NBA finalists, will host the 2021 champion, the Milwaukee Bucks. Yes, we will face two fantastic teams led by Jayson Tatum and Giannis Antetokounmpo. It’s sure to be a great way to whet your appetite before we head to Madison Square Garden to see how the Knicks and Sixers square off. The New Yorkers have made some big bets this summer, like the arrival of Jalen Brunson, but for now they can’t be called more than an unknown for the 2022-23 season. About Philadelphia, there are fewer doubts; with Joel Embiid and James Harden at the helm, they should be top of the Eastern Conference.
And we’re off to the Western Conference. There it will be Denver and Phoenix who will open fire. Those in Colorado are picking up two of their top three players (Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr.) who will join the party that will surely be hosted by the MVP of the past two seasons, Nikola Jokic. Ahead will be wounded Suns; a team that fell last year in the playoffs when no one expected it and now has to show that it is still a combat.
From Colorado, we walk to Texas. Some Mavericks who will continue to be led exclusively by Luka Doncic will receive Lakers who hope to have a much better campaign than the 2021-22, in which they could not even enter play in. It will be another opportunity to see LeBron James at Christmas, who will make 17 appearances in such a celebration (so far he is tied with Kobe Bryant at 16).
This great basketball celebration will culminate at the champion’s home, at the Chase Center of the Golden State Warriors. The Californians will receive in their pavilion the Memphis Grizzlies, which can be defined as the greatest emerging force in the NBA. Those of Tennessee have been surprising for two years and want to continue to take steps to establish themselves in the elite of the competition. Stephen Curry and Ja Morant on the ground, is there a better way to end the show?
