Once you’ve secured a subscription to one of the streaming services above, you’ll be ready to watch NBA games live online this Christmas Day. Here’s a schedule and breakdown of all five NBA games to look forward to this Christmas Day (times in ET):
Unlike most of the teams playing today, the Knicks didn’t make the playoffs last year. But they’ve shown some promise this season — such as when they beat the 76ers in November. It’ll be exciting to watch the two rivals meet again, especially since Joel Embiid and James Harden are both likely to be out on the court.
Today’s second game is less Lakers vs. Mavericks, more Lebron James vs. Luka Dončić. And we’re all in for the show. Today will also be the second Christmas in a row that James sets a new record, this time for most games played on Christmas. Last year, he passed Kobe Bryant to become the all-time leading scorer in Christmas Day games.
Easily the best basketball game today is a clash between the two top teams in the Eastern Conference: the Bucks and the Celtics. The duo hasn’t met since their seven-game series in the 2022 conference semifinals, where Boston came out on top. Both teams will hopefully be playing their stars — including Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown on the Celtics and Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo on the Bucks — which should make for some real Christmas Day excitement.
The Grizzlies and the Warriors churned up a trash-talk-heavy rivalry during the playoffs this year before Golden State beat Memphis and advanced to the conference finals. This will be the teams’ first rematch since then, and things could easily go Memphis’ way this time around, as the Warriors have been somewhat off their A-game lately with a 15-16 season.
Both the Suns and the Nuggets have a promising trajectory in the Western Conference, where no one team has separated itself from the pack. One of the obvious draws is back-to-back MVP Nikola Jokić, who now has Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. back from injuries as support. And Phoneix brings plenty of star power as well with Chris Paul, Devin Booker, and Deandre Ayton all expected on the court today.

MADISON, Wis. – Gophers basketball coach Ben Johnson watched his team take control briefly in the first half Tuesday right before Wisconsin's leading scorer and rebounder Tyler Wahl left the game after rolling his ankle.
