★★★

The Golden State Warriors enter Christmas day with a .964 winning percentage - the best in NBA history for any team entering the holiday. Their 27-1 record is also the best in NBA history through 28 games. The Cavs bolster a fully healthy roster and enter Christmas day as winners of six straight. The Warriors ended the Cavaliers season on their home court to win the 2015 NBA Finals the last time the two teams faced off.

Last Time Out

The Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Carmelo Anthony-less New York Knicks 91-84 on Wednesday. LeBron James led all scorers with 24 points and Kyrie Irving added five points in 19 minutes on one of seven shooting. Irving played in just his second game since injuring his knee in game one of the Finals last season.

The Warriors won their 31st consecutive regular season game at home on Wednesday with a 103-85 victory over the Utah Jazz. Klay Thompson scored 20+ points for the eighth time in his last nine games. Andrew Bogut chipped in with 10 points and 13 rebounds.

Golden State (-300) enters the Christmas day marquee matchup as seven point favorites over visiting Cleveland (+250). The over/under line is set at 208 total points according to BetOnline. Here are some betting trends compiled by OddsShark.com:
