As Hoops Wire has relayed and Stein first reported, the 2022-23 NBA schedule isn’t due out for several more weeks. Stein also noted that the Lakers-Mavs game on Christmas is only tentatively scheduled at this point and that things could change.

But it appears we may know of at least one game, and it features two of its biggest stars — with James and the Lakers looking for a return to the playoffs, and Doncic and the Mavs coming off a run to the Western Conference finals.

The biggest question for the Lakers, of course, is whether they can trade Russell Westbrook before then. We have more on that right here.
