Each year there are a host of big matches scheduled for December 25 and today is no different.
The biggest game of the day sees an NBA Finals rematch between Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors, although Steph Curry won’t be playing as he continues his recovery from an ankle injury.
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr says it would be “irresponsible” to make him play against the Cavaliers.
“The guy hasn’t even had a 3-on-3 game, right?” Kerr said.
“So if we weren’t playing Cleveland on Christmas and I told you Steph hasn’t played in a 3-on-3 game, hasn’t had any contact at all and the game is 48 hours from now, you’d say, ‘oh, Steph’s not going to play.
“But because of the magnitude of the game, everybody wants to know. But we can’t let that affect our judgement.
“He can’t play. That would be completely irresponsible if he did.”
There are four other matches taking place this year that fans will be able to watch on TV and online.
