The Memphis Grizzlies could be getting their first Christmas game in franchise history. According to Marc Stein, the Grizzlies facing the Golden State Warriors is one of the preliminary Christmas Day matchups this year.
The first draft of next season's NBA schedule has Lakers at Dallas/LeBron at Luka on Christmas Day, league sources tell me.— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) August 13, 2022
Changes are still possible before the full schedule officially drops next week but Christmas games usually hold.

The Warriors have been a staple on Christmas Day since their run began in 2015, but for the Grizzlies this is a huge first for both the players and the Franchise as a whole.
After a hard fought series and some back and forth this off-season, it seems that the NBA is ready to capitalize on one of its more intriguing matchups. Ja Morant and Draymond Green both expressed their interest in the matchup on twitter earlier this summer.

According to Marc Stein, changes are still possible before the full schedule officially drops next week but Christmas games usually hold. So, for now it’s safe to assume the Grizzlies will be traveling to San Francisco this Holiday season.
