The NBA Has Set the Dallas Mavericks and the Los Angeles Lakers for the Primetime Game
The NBA Christmas Day schedule was first released by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, who announced the news on Tuesday afternoon. The games look pretty perfect, and it looks like Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks will be facing LeBron James and the defending-champion Los Angeles Lakers in the primetime game which will air at 8 p.m. ET. While some people expected the match to be Lakers-Clippers, it turned out fans will witness a different and just as intriguing game.
The NBA Christmas Day schedule starts with a match between the Pelicans and the Heat, followed by the Warriors against Milwaukee. In that match, fans will be able to see the return of Steph Curry. Then, the Nets-Celtics match will take place behind closed doors, and fans will not be allowed in the Garden, meaning they will miss Kyrie Irving’s return to Boston.
Luka and LeBron Will Face Each Other On the Field In the Primetime Game
Luka Doncic and LeBron James will try to outplay each other once again during the primetime game. While Doncic turns 21 next month and has accomplished great feats, becoming a second-year superstar guard, he does not like to be called the best 20-year-old player in NBA history. The rising star believes he still has much to prove, and the match against the Lakers will be a chance for him to do that. James and the Los Angeles Lakers will bring their own zeal to the game, and hopefully, the game will be as thrilling as it can get.
After the primetime game ends, the Clippers will visit the Denver Nuggets and have a chance for a rematch.
