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.

The Heat and the Thunder are playing some of the best basketball in the NBA right now. Miami is currently riding a four-game winning streak, and Oklahoma City just had their 12-game winning streak snapped against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Dec. 20.

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.
