Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown’s Boston Celtics will host Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Milwaukee Bucks at TD Garden as part of the Christmas Day billboard for the 2022-23 NBA season. Last year both teams met at the Fiserv Forum and the ‘Greek Freak’ guided his team to victory.

Devin Booker, Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton will travel to Denver for their 20th Christmas game against Nikola Jokic’s Nuggets. The games between Warriors vs. Grizzlies and Mavericks vs. Lakers will be in Golden State and Dallas, respectively.

On the other hand, James Harden, Joel Embiid and other members of the Sixers will visit Madison Square Garden to face the New York Knicks, who stand out for hiring Jalen Brunson, Luka Doncic’s squire.
