Merry Christmas from all of us at SB Nation Chicago. The Bulls and Knicks headline five NBA games on national TV today; there's also NFL action tonight (though a game between two also-rans). For those of you who received new flatscreen TVs for Christmas (lucky you!), they'll get a workout today.â†µâ†µ
11 a.m., WGN: NBA, Bulls at Knicks. For the first time in almost a decade, the Knicks are relevant again, after their acquisition of Amare Stoudemire. The WGN feed is Chicago-only; outside Chicago, the game is on ESPN.â†µâ†µ
1:30 p.m., ABC-7: NBA, Celtics at Magic.â†µâ†µ
4 p.m., ABC-7: NBA, Heat at Lakers. Go Lakers. (In fact, Go Any-Team-Facing-The-Heat.)â†µâ†µ
6:30 p.m., NFL Network: Cowboys at Cardinals. This matchup probably looked better before the season started. The Cardinals did manage to sell out University of Phoenix Stadium for the game, though, so it will be shown in the Phoenix area.â†µâ†µ
7 p.m., ESPN: NBA, Nuggets at Thunder.â†µâ†µ
9:30 p.m., ESPN: NBA, Trail Blazers at Warriors.
