UPDATE: It’s official, the Thunder will take on Orlando in Oklahoma Christmas Day at 7 p.m. CT on ESPN.
The official NBA revised schedule won’t be released until next week probably, but the opening day slate of games on Christmas are becoming a bit more firm. We already know about the Celtics and Knicks, Heat and Mavericks, and Bulls and Lakers. There’s a report saying the last game of the day would be the Clippers at the Warriors.
After some speculation that the Thunder would play the Grizzlies, according to Zach McCann formerly of the Orlando Sentinel, Oklahoma City will host the Magic.
Unconfirmed and I’ve heard the league will make an announcement regarding Christmas games as early as tomorrow, but there you go. Don’t make plans just yet, because sometimes, things change. No idea whether it would be the 4 p.m. CT game or 7 p.m. game. But I would say the chances of OKC playing on Christmas are very high.
