Monday, Dec. 25 will mark the 70th edition of the NBA on Christmas Day. The NBA will play five games on Christmas for the 10th straight year. ABC will televise three games for the first time, while ESPN and TNT will air one game each.

Christmas Day will include a Finals rematch between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors. The Cleveland-Golden State game is one of three rematches from the NBA Playoffs 2017, along with the Boston Celtics playing host to the Washington Wizards and the Houston Rockets visiting the Oklahoma City Thunder.

In addition, the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers – the NBA’s two winningest franchises on Christmas Day – will play home games against the Philadelphia 76ers and Minnesota Timberwolves, respectively.
