The Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors will continue their budding rivalry with a game on Christmas at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, reports Brad Turner of the L.A. Times

The two teams met on Christmas last year in Oakland, and the Clippers eliminated the Warriors in the first round of the playoffs in May.

In last year's Christmas game, Warriors forward Draymond Green was ejected for a Flagrant Foul 2, Clippers forward Blake Griffin was ejected for picking up two technical fouls, and Warriors center Andrew Bogut incurred a Flagrant Foul 1 for wrapping up Griffin. 

In the playoffs, the Clippers eliminated the Warriors in seven games. Los Angeles fell to Oklahoma City in six games in the second round.
