Report: Heat and Pelicans to Meet on Christmas

by August 06, 2015

The Miami Heat will once again be showcased on Christmas Day.

But instead of LeBron James returning to South Beach, it’ll reportedly be Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans paying Dwyane Wade and company a visit.

The full NBA schedule should be unveiled next Tuesday.

Per the Miami Herald:

The source called that matchup likely but stopped short of saying definite because the NBA reserves the right to change anything before the schedule is announced.


That game would be on ESPN, with the 2:30 and 5 p.m. games on ABC.


The Heat is 9-2 all-time in Christmas games, including 4-0 at home, and has won six in a row on Christmas overall, including a 101-91 win against Cleveland last season.
