The marquee matchup of the Christmas Day NBA quintuple-header comes in prime time as two teams with playoff hopes clash at the newly renamed Crypto.com Arena, where Russell Westbrook and the Los Angeles Lakers will defend home hardwood from Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets. Despite missing starting point guard Kyrie Irving and some inconsistent play, the Nets own the best record in the East, led by the stellar performance of Durant. As for the Lakers, they've struggled around .500 with LeBron James injured and Westbrook having trouble getting in sync with his new team.
