'Tis the season to be an NBA fan.
Christmas has finally arrived, and one of the most superstar-laden days of the year is officially underway. The 2013-14 campaign has been full of surprises, and while they haven't all been merry, they've each contributed to the narrative.
Entering the 2013 holiday lineup, a number of games lack the luster they had when the schedule was released. The injury bug has been a real Scrooge this season, and as a result, the mystique surrounding teams like the Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls is all but gone for the casual viewer.
But while a number of teams have disappointed, don't consider this year's lineup a lump of coal. Kevin Durant and LeBron James will take the court back-to-back on ABC, and then James Harden and Chris Paul will do the same on ESPN.
Finding time to catch each contest can be difficult amid family gatherings, but we here at Bleacher Report have you covered. The most enthusiastic fans will watch all five games, but if that's not an option, you'll need a guide to the most watchable matchups.
