On Christmas Day, the Los Angeles Lakers will be facing the Golden State Warriors. Here are three players to watch.

The Los Angeles Lakers have a big game on Christmas against the Golden State Warriors. Christmas Day in the NBA is always a fun day for the fans, as there are a lot of great matchups.

One of the best matchups will be the Warriors against the Lakers. This will be the first time that we see LeBron with the Lakers against a team that has been a thorn in his side. For the last four years, LeBron has faced the Warriors in the NBA Finals.

Aside from one win with the Cavaliers, LeBron lost to the Warriors three times, including two in a row. With the Warriors having a super team full of stars, James will be hoping that his new teammates help him topple the Warriors.

The Lakers are coming off a disappointing loss against the Memphis Grizzlies, as they might have been looking ahead to this game. Losing a game at home to what was a struggling Grizzlies team is certainly disappointing for the Lakers, but they can make up for that with a win against the Warriors.

While the Lakers do have Rajon Rondo and Brandon Ingram back, they have been without Tyson Chandler and JaVale McGee the few games. Against the two-time defending champions, being at full strength for the Lakers would be ideal. However, they should be prepared for a big game regardless. With an exciting game expected, here are three players to watch on Christmas Day.
