NBA Christmas Day Hoops Marathon Open Thread

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Cavaliers aren't playing today, but there are 5 relatively decent matchups to watch today.

Do you love basketball? Do you want to kind of ignore your relatives? Well then I have just the thing for you!

It's the NBA Christmas Day Hoops Marathon! On this lovely holiday, it's important to remember the reason for the season. And that reason is an endless marathon of professional basketball. So we've got FIVE games on today, starting at noon. I'll be around for part of the day, but use this thread to talk about the games with one another.

Here's the schedule of games

Bulls vs. Nets -- 12 PM, ESPN
Thunder vs. Knicks -- 2:30 PM, ABC
Heat vs. Lakers -- 5:00 PM, ABC
Rockets vs. Spurs -- 8:00 PM, ESPN
Clippers vs. Warriors -- 10:30 PM, ESPN

So use this open thread and I hope you have a lovely day.
