The second game on the NBA Christmas schedule 2013 is a free live stream contest between the Knicks and Thunder, which will be broadcast live on ABC at the TV start time of 2:40 p.m. EST, according to a Dec. 24 NBA report.
Even though Kevin Durant and the OKC Thunder come in winners of nine of their last 10 games, they trail the surprising Portland Trail Blazers by a half game for the Northwest Division's top spot.
In contrast, the NY Knicks can't seem to catch a break, as they come in just 5-5 over that stretch, and with Carmelo Anthony as a game-time decision for today's NBA Christmas scheduled 2013 game.
