NBA’s Christmas Day schedule
The pick of the day, is undoubtedly the clash at the TD Garden in Boston which sees the top team in the East, Milwaukee Bucks travel to Massachusetts in a repeat of the Eastern Conference semifinals last season, where the Celtics prevailed. In a series that went to seven intense games, the Celtics finally overcame Giannis and Co. to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals where they faced the Miami Heat. Needless to say, the Bucks will be looking for revenge in this one. With Jayson Tatum averaging 30 points per game - the same as Giannis - that prospect may be easier said than done.
Prior to the Bucks’ date with the Celtitcs, we’ve also got to turn an eye to the Lakers and Lebron, as they travel to Dallas to face the Luka Doncic powered Mavs. As appetizers go, it doesn’t get tastier than that as you prepare your palette for the main course in Boston.
