As has been the case in recent years, the NBA has a number of games on the schedule for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. There are nine games in total, with four being shown on national television networks. NBA TV will have two games, with the Knicks hosting the Hawks at 1:00 p.m. Eastern and the Nuggets hosting the Magic at 5:00 p.m. Eastern.

TNT will also broadcast two games Monday, beginning with the highly anticipated rematch between the Cavaliers and Warriors. Cleveland came back to win the first meeting between the two teams this season on Christmas Day, and the franchises have met in each of the last two NBA Finals. The second game of the TNT doubleheader features two of the NBA’s best point guards, as Russell Westbrook and the Thunder visit Chris Paul and the Clippers.
