NBA on Christmas Preview: LeBron vs. Kawhi, Giannis vs. Embiid & key stats to consider

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - December 23, 2019 - 1:08:06

On today's episode, Ben Golliver and Michael Pina offer a full preview of the NBA's 2019 Christmas quintuple-header, ranking the games in terms of watchability. What's at stake for LeBron James's Lakers and Kawhi Leonard's Clippers in their rematch? Could a holiday showdown with Philadelphia be one of the most important days in Giannis Inc.'s history? After breaking down the headline match-ups, Ben and Michael offer one key stat for each of the 10 teams playing on Christmas, highlighting Jayson Tatum's insane RPM, the Nuggets' unmatched continuity, Lonzo Ball's inefficiency and the Warriors' very depressing team leaders. Programming note: Open Floor will be off for the rest of the week and will resume regularly scheduled programming on Dec. 31. Happy holidays.
