The 2015-2016 NBA schedule has been slowly leaking, with the Cavaliers and Warriors set to renew their Finals battle on Christmas along with Anthony Davis and the Pelicans taking on Dwyane Wade and the Heat. Now two more bits have come out, via the Oklahoman about the Thunder's schedule next year:
"For the sixth consecutive season, Oklahoma City will be featured in the league's biggest holiday showcase when it hosts Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls on Christmas Day, The Oklahoman has learned. It will be the first time the Thunder has hosted a Christmas game since 2011, when it defeated Orlando inside Chesapeake Energy Arena."
With the Clippers and Lakers also set to meet that night, four of the five matchups for that day are set. The question is whether the Knicks will get their usual spot, or if San Antonio or Houston will find their way into the matchups. It'll be great to find out what the line will be on that opener for OKC vs. the Spurs. The season moves ever closer to being here. The full schedule is expected to be released soon.
