Warriors at Cavs GameThread: The Christmas Day rematch

The most anticipated game on the NBA schedule tips off this morning at 11:30 a.m.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

There are so many storylines for today's game between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers that it's almost hard to pick one reason why it's so highly anticipated. But here's the bah humbug one I'm choosing: it's the first place team in the Western Conference vs. the first place team in the Eastern Conference; it could have implications for home court advantage should these two teams meet in the Finals again. Other than that? We shouldn't read too much into it as Cleveland is dealing with some injury issues today.

Really, I'm not mad at the hype ... I just hate thinking about that last Finals series ... I want the Warriors to crush them today and move on. That would make my Christmas very Merry.
