The 2015 draft class has progressed to the point where the players have made their names in the league and NBA fans now know who’s relevant and who isn’t. Players like Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell, and Kristaps Porzingis define the 2015 NBA Draft Class and have solidified themselves in the league. One name that was thought to be a bust until this season is the third overall pick, Jahlil Okafor. The star big man came off a national championship team with Duke University in 2015.
The Los Angeles Clippers squared off against the Charlotte Hornets. Los Angeles would come away with the 117-115 victory thanks to a Tobias Harris buzzer beater. Harris would have 34 points while going 13-of-21 from the field as well as making six three-pointers.

I have heard some people debating this as of late. I said it before the season started and I’m sticking to my prediction. The Toronto Raptors will go to the finals this season. Kawhi Leonard is the best player in the Eastern Conference. Some people forget that Kawhi is a champion. He can will the Raptors to the finals against the Celtics, Sixers, etc. The Raptors have a great defensive team, can switch almost every position.
Christmas is a time for family togetherness because school and work are canceled as it’s given a federal holiday for everyone including non-celebrators. NBA games on Christmas have become a tradition even for non-NBA fans because it’s the one day where all the games are nationally televised on ABC, ESPN or TNT while also being easily accessible on online platforms. The NBA is smart to market this way because it attracts a large number of viewers as they also showcase new special Christmas Day jerseys for each team involved and let the players involved design special Christmas day sneakers with unique colorways.
