NBA Wrap: Five Game Holiday Slate Begins Today


The NBA will serve up a Christmas Day feast for basketball fans.

The Christmas Day five-game holiday slate begins in Orlando, where the Southeast Division-leading Magic bring a five-game winning streak into their encounter with Southwest Division leader New Orleans.

San Antonio at Phoenix is next up. The Spurs will be chasing a fourth straight W when they take the floor against the Suns.

But San Antonio has shaken off its rough start when it lost five of its first seven contests and is climbing back up the West standings.

Cleveland will be out to protect its unblemished home record tonight against a visiting Washington club that's lost seven straight and is an Eastern Conference-worst 4-and-22.

The Christmas curtain falls in Portland with a game between the Trail Blazers and Dallas Mavericks.

Dallas is once again proving to be a playoff contender, winning 14 of its last 18 games.
