Report: Warriors to face Giannis, Bucks on Christmas Day


The Warriors' Christmas Day tradition reportedly will continue.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Tuesday night that the Warriors will face the Bucks in Milwaukee in one of the five games on the NBA's tentative Christmas Day slate. It will mark the fifth straight year that Golden State plays on Dec. 25.

The Warriors-Bucks game is scheduled to tip off at 11:30 a.m. (Pacific), so fans should have plenty of time to open presents before watching Steph Curry and Giannis Antetokounmpo lead their respective sides against one another. Milwaukee has finished with the league's best record in each of the last two seasons, so the Warriors surely will have their hands full.

Golden State is 2-2 on Christmas Day since the 2016-17 season, including a 116-104 win over the Houston Rockets last year. The matchup with the Bucks will mark the first time in four years that the Warriors play on the road on Christmas Day.
