Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah to everyone on this Sunday morning! Whether you celebrate the holidays for religious reasons or just to spend quality time with your loved ones, we all hope you enjoy the holidays.

If you didn’t see it already, here is Monumental Sports’ holiday video card which features all of the teams:

The Wizards aren’t playing today, but there are still plenty of games on for your basketball fix after you open those presents.

Here’s the list:

  • Celtics (17-13) at Knicks (16-13), 12 p.m. ET - A Northeast rivalry is renewed as these two teams kick off the Christmas schedule. Watch this on ESPN.
  • Warriors (27-4) at Cavaliers (22-6), 2:30 p.m. ET - The two-time defending Eastern and Western Conference champs are still the best two teams right now. Watch this on your local ABC station. In the D.C. area, it’s WJLA.
  • Bulls (14-15) at Spurs (24-6), 5 p.m. ET - I just have a hunch that this will be the underrated game of the night. This is also on your local ABC station.
  • Timberwolves (9-20) at Thunder (18-12) 8 p.m. ET - Yes, the Wolves are playing on Christmas despite being projected as a lottery team before the season. Meanwhile, Russell Westbrook is quickly making himself the modern-day Oscar Robertson. This is on ESPN.
  • Clippers (22-9) at Lakers (11-22), 10:30 p.m. ET - The Lakers have fallen down to earth in the last couple weeks. But at least they’re truly rebuilding now that the Kobe Bryant farewell tour is over. You can watch this on ESPN.

Once again, enjoy your Sundays. See you all tomorrow for the Bucks game at Verizon Center!
