The NBA made sure to give its fans a lot to look forward to on Christmas Day 2022.
It is usually one of the biggest days of the year for the league but they pulled out all the stops this year in order to really secure a huge audience.
But they’re not alone: the NFL is also getting into the act this year, meaning that sports fans will have a whole lot to watch.
People better unwrap their presents early because their day will be packed from beginning to end with terrific games.

It all starts with the Philadelphia 76ers taking on the New York Knicks at noon.
The Green Bay Packers face off with the Miami Dolphins at 1 p.m. ET, while the Los Angeles Lakers will battle the Dallas Mavericks at 2:30.
Then it’s the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Rams, the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics, and Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors at 8.
It all ends with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers playing the Arizona Cardinals while the Phoenix Suns take on the Denver Nuggets.
What a lineup, what a schedule, what a day.
Happy Holidays Indeed
On the NBA side, there are quite a few exciting games set for Christmas.
Oddly enough, the most compelling one might not be the last.
The Grizzlies versus the Warriors will probably have the most fireworks, based on what we saw in last season’s playoffs.
The Suns and Nuggets will be fun too but it probably won’t be as impressive as Grizz versus Warriors.
Each game will provide some entertainment, even the ones featuring lesser teams like the Knicks and Lakers.
Christmas Day is not only going to be great for families this year, it’ll always be amazing for fans of basketball and football.
