Per Jon Johnson at WIP:
Per source: Sixers. Christmas. Wells Fargo Center.

This would be the third straight season the Sixers have played on Christmas. They were in New York in 2017, then played the Celtics in the Boston Garden last season. Great game, that one, and it pulled 7.3 million viewers.
For what it’s worth, the Sixers are 17-14 all-time on Christmas Day. Prior to 2017, they had not played on December 25th since 2001, when they traveled to Los Angeles for a finals rematch with the Lakers.
I supposed the next thing for me to do is complain about having to work on Christmas, right?
“Wahhhh, wahhhh, why do I have to work on Christmas? Waaah.”
