NBA Christmas Day Game Thread

The Indiana Pacers will enjoy some well-deserved rest on Christmas Day and join the rest of us in watching NBA ball all day.

A very heartfelt Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to one and all who wander by Indy Cornrows, with a special thanks to all of the site contributors and common-sense commenters which make this place a safe haven for Pacers fanatics to share their thoughts and divergent opinions on the issues of the day surrounding the Pacers.

Of course, the Indiana Pacers SHOULD be featured by the NBA on their Christmas Day schedule. But I'm sure when the players wake up for their second day off, with two more to go, they'll be happy the league leaders in New York decided the Blue and Gold weren't intriguing enough to showcase on the biggest regular-season date on the schedule.

The Pacers will likely enjoy some time around the TV checking out the action like regular NBA fans. They'll even get to scout their next opponent in the first game of the day. Of course, the Brooklyn Nets are also their last opponent, so there won't be many surprises.

Here's the full schedule of games for Christmas Day:

Chicago Bulls vs. Brooklyn Nets - 12 p.m. ET on ESPN

Oklahoma City Thunder vs. New York Knicks - 2:30 p.m. ET on ABC

Miami Heat vs. Los Angeles Lakers - 5 p.m. ET on ABC

Houston Rockets vs. San Antonio Spurs - 8 p.m. ET on ESPN

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Golden State Warrirors - 10:30 p.m. ET on ESPN
