The Toronto Raptors Will Be Playing on Christmas Day Next Season
After making sports history this season, the Toronto Raptors will be closing out the year in style!
This Christmas Day the Raps will be playing against the Boston Celtics, which will be the first time the team has played on the holiday since 2001.

Clippers vs Lakers
Celtics vs. Raptors
Pelicans vs. Nuggets
Bucks vs. 76ers
Rockets vs. Warriors
Playing a game on Christmas day is a significant achievement for the team right after winning this year’s NBA Finals.
Since most Christmas games are held in the U.S., it’s easy to see why it’s difficult for the Raps to get this game in previous years. After winning the championship, however, it seems like the NBA has more than enough reason to schedule the game for that day.
Christmas games for the NBA are unique, as players get both special jerseys and shoes.
