Game Dallas Mavericks fans cannot miss in 2022-2023 season: 1. Christmas Day vs. Lakers

Matchup: Los Angeles Lakers at Dallas Mavericks on Dec. 25 at 1:30 p.m. CT on ABC

Christmas Day is the marquee date of the regular season, and for the second time in three years, they put Luka Doncic and the Mavs up against LeBron James and the Lakers. LeBron got the first laugh with a dominating performance to help the Lakers top Dallas on Christmas Day 20202. Can Luka get some revenge against his idol this year?

Putting Luka versus LeBron was an easy decision as the NBA has to compete with the NFL this Christmas. It is a matchup of two of the biggest stars in the league, and both will go down as all-time greats no matter what happens from here.

Will the Lakers bounce back this season and return to the playoffs? They will need LeBron and Anthony Davis to be healthier, and Los Angeles must find a solution for how to use Russell Westbrook. If they cannot do that, the Lakers will struggle to make the postseason, and they could easily be eliminated in the play-in tournament again.
