Lakers vs Mavericks Headline Christmas Day Games

It feels like the Los Angeles Lakers just finished beating the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, and sure enough, here we are talking about NBA basketball again.

What a time to be alive.

It's being reported the NBA's cherished Christmas schedule is set to include the Lakers taking on Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks, along with of course several other matchups as it's a basketball filled day. 

Talk about the who's who of the NBA showcased in front of the world. Noticeably absent are the Houston Rockets, Portland Trail Blazers, Phoenix Suns, Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers.  

One game that will be fun to watch is the Nets vs Celtics where Kyrie Irving gets to play his old mates in Bean Town. There's going to be a ton of focus on how the Nets operate with a roster full of talent and a bench led by first-year head coach, Steve Nash.

Get you popcorn ready, NBA fans. It's almost Christmas!
