Bumper Xmas day fixture list in the NBA

The NBA has never failed its fans come Christmas day with the fixture list they put out, it’s designed to keep fans glued to their couches all-day long.

I must say in 2019 they have brought out the biggest clashes in recent memory.

The ball gets rolling when the entertaining Celtics face the Raptors in what is going to be a very physical encounter.
There after the Bucks will look to assert their dominance in the East by dismantling the 76ers on their own floor.

It’s all eyes on the West after that game as the Rockets will look to make light work of the dilapidated Warriors team, in what should be a stroll in the park for James Harden and Russell Westbrook.
The biggest one of them all will be the two incumbents for to represent the Western Conference in the Final. This will pit the two Los Angeles giants against one another for the second time this season. The Lakers have been on a dominant run since their defeat to the Clippers, which has seen them become the best team in the league.
To close the fixture list off the Pelicans will square up to the Nuggets in a crucial clash for a future playoff berth. Beating a potential playoff contender is always a boost for any team and this prime time clash will have alot to offer.

So phones on flight mode this Christmas, we shall be thoroughly entertained.

And for those who would like to have some skin in the games, here are my picks:

Raptors W
Bucks W
Rockets W
Lakers W
Nuggets W
