Christmas is coming early for you hoops heads.
Strike that, I mean early and often, because the NBA's Christmas Day slate is actually quite Christmassy.
But that's besides the point here. Just know that Monday has plenty of action worthy of a dietary cheat night in store for us.
The Indiana Pacers will bring their ridiculously awesome act to the shorthanded Brooklyn Nets. The Golden State Warriors will meet the Denver Nuggets to determine who is more playoff ready. And the New York Knicks look to do something out of the ordinary (win) against the Orlando Magic.
That's just the beginning. There are eight other games deserving of your attention.
Grab that tub of full-flavor ice cream and get your saturated fat-eating pants on. It's going to be that kind of awesome in the NBA Monday night.
