With the NBA schedule still a week away from official release, a few of the league’s marquee matchups have started leaking over social media.
And the Thunder, reportedly, will once again be involved in the NBA’s brightest showcase day.
OKC, always an intriguing national draw, will be in Madison Square Garden to play the Knicks on Christmas Day, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News.
This would mark the fourth consecutive season the Thunder has played on Christmas, with a record of 2-1.
-2010: OKC beats Denver 114-106 at home, led by Kevin Durant’s 44 points.
-2011: OKC starts the lockout-shortened season with a 97-89 Christmas home win over Orlando.
-2012: In an NBA Finals rematch on the holiday, OKC falls 103-97 to the Heat
Other reported Christmas Day games: Heat at Lakers / Bulls at Nets.
At this point, any leaked games are still tentative dates, with nothing set in stone until the schedule is officially announced on Aug. 6th at 5 p.m. CT on NBA TV.
