Magic vs. Thunder rounds out NBA Christmas Day

Dec 2, 2011, 12:05 PM EDT

Kevin Durant dunks

The real question is will Dwight Howard be in a Magic uniform for the game

But we now know the fifth and final Christmas Day game will be the Orlando Magic at the Oklahoma City Thunder, the league just confirmed it via its official twitter account.

Again, this game is the kind of big stars and big splash the NBA is going for on its new opening day. Orlando will be a story whatever happens with Dwight Howard, and Kevin Durant is the league’s newest superstar (well, he and Derrick Rose can arm wrestle for the title).

A source told PBT that Magic staffers were emailed and told to prepare for a Dec. 26 or 27 home opener (it did not mention this game). So it will be a quick turnaround for the Magic players, but with the condensed schedule everyone had better get used to that.

The other Christmas Day games are the Celtics at the Knicks, the Heat at the Mavericks, the Bulls at the Lakers and the Clippers at the Warriors.

    The police should be able to serve a lot of arrest warrants on Christ as Day across NBA arenas with all the thugs in one place.
