The NBA season shouldn’t be in its infancy at the beginning of the calendar year, but we’re not complaining as a fresh slate of fixtures kicked off over the Christmas period to signal the start of a new season.
The Philadelphia 76ers have raced into an early lead in the Eastern Conference, but the Indiana Pacers, Orlando Magic and resurgent Cleveland Cavaliers are all in hot pursuit with the vast majority of the season remaining.
Way out west, the LA Clippers, LA Lakers and Phoenix Suns have blasted out of the traps with strong starts.
The timezones may not always suit UK fans, but game times are gradually becoming more friendly to those on the eastern side of the Atlantic with a host of primetime games on Saturdays and Sundays to keep you entertained.
RadioTimes.com has taken a look at all the games coming up over and Christmas, and where to watch them all.
