In between opening gifts, guzzling eggnog and stuffing your face, David Stern’s tried to make sure there’s proper entertainment for today. In what’s now a become a tradition, the NBA has a full schedule of games for Christmas Day but most of the match-ups lack the punch they appeared to have when the season’s schedule was announced.
No Kobe, no Derrick Rose and no Brook Lopez. Two 9-18 teams and one that’s 10-16. Yeah, we’re getting table scraps for games. But, the Warriors-Clippers game should be good and the Lakers-Heat contest might feature LeBron landing another crushing dunk on somebody’s head. Whatever happens, some hoops beats no hoops at all and the games definitely trump watching boring Christmas movies.
Who’s playing? What time? Where to watch it both on TV and mobile devices? Where can we sit and shoot the sh*t with our TSS fam?
Below, we’ve put everything you need to know with the NBA’s full TV schedule for Christmas Day 2013.
