Christmas Day is one of the biggest days for the NBA, providing fans with some of the most competitive regular season matchups of the year.
This season, it seems, will be no different.
The full NBA Christmas Day schedule is set to be released on Wednesday. Though according to Marc Stein of the New York Times, we found out three of the matchups slated for that day — and one of them is a matchup nearly every NBA fan has been waiting for.
The Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors will reportedly face off in Oakland on Christmas this season, pitting the defending NBA Finals champions against LeBron James and his newly-assembled squad in Southern California.
A vintage dose of Celtics/Sixers, Giannis and the Bucks at MSG against the Knicks and (you guessed it) LeBron's Lakers in Oakland to face the Warriors are the highlights of the NBA's Christmas Day schedule that will be announced Wednesday afternoon, league sources tell @NYTSports

The Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers will play on Christmas, too, providing a rematch of the entertaining Eastern Conference Semifinals series last season. Stein also reported that the Milwaukee Bucks will take on the New York Knicks — who traditionally play on Christmas each season — at Madison Square Garden.
According to Chris Haynes of ESPN, the Utah Jazz will host the Portland Trail Blazers on Christmas Day.
