Monday December 15th, 2014

The NBA schedule features five games on Christmas Day 2014, starting at noon ET. Eight of the 10 teams scheduled to play this year also played on Dec. 25 last season, but just one of this year's games -- Warriors vs. Clippers -- is a re-match from Christmas 2013. 

Golden State won last season's game over Los Angeles by two, while the Bulls, Thunder, Heat and Rockets all picked up wins last Christmas. 

For the past two years, NBA teams have worn alternate jerseys on Christmas Day. This year, the jerseys will have the team's logo on the front and the player's first name on the back below the number.

LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant will also wear special Christmas-themed Nike sneakers. James will be returning to Miami for the first time since leaving the Heat to rejoin the Cleveland Cavaliers. 

The full schedule for Christmas 2014 is below (all times are ET):

Washington Wizards at New York Knicks, noon (ESPN)

Oklahoma City Thunder at San Antonio Spurs, 2:30 p.m. (ABC)

Cleveland Cavaliers at Miami Heat, 5 p.m. (ABC)

Los Angeles Lakers at Chicago Bulls, 8 p.m. (TNT)
