An NBA Finals rematch between the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder highlights the NBA's Christmas Day schedule.

An NBA Finals rematch between the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder is the highlight of what should be a very entertaining Christmas Day schedule for the NBA.

Also on Christmas Day, the resurgent New York Knicks will head to Los Angeles to take on former head coach Mike D'Antoni and the Lakers, and the Los Angeles Clippers will look to win their team-record 14th straight game when they face the Denver Nuggets.
