Kerr

Steve Kerr on playing on Christmas Day

Kerr: "Generally, I like playing on Christmas. It's exciting," he said before Thursday night's 113-104 home win against the Memphis Grizzlies. "I love playing at home on Christmas. That way you can still have a good family day Christmas morning with the kids and then go to the arena later. It's tough being on the road for Christmas, but it's part of being in the NBA.

NBA Christmas Day schedule

Tonight's Warriors-Suns match-up is one of five games taking place on 25 December and probably the most attractive game of the bunch featuring the leaders in the Western Conference (Suns) and second placed side (Warriors).
