Game Preview

Golden State is trying to squeeze one more title run out of its championship window and will have to devise a way to get through the Denver Nuggets in order to get there.

The Warriors and Nuggets are the last two NBA champions and will face off at Denver in a Western Conference showdown game on Christmas Day. Golden State is a regular to the Christmas audience, but the Nuggets are fairly new to the scene.

Denver played on Dec. 25 last year and three of the last five seasons, including an overtime win over the Phoenix Suns in 2022. As the reigning title holder, with a two-time league MVP in Nikola Jokic, the Nuggets could be a staple on this day for a few years.
