By David Jacobs | December 26th, 2012

With the week of Christmas celebrations ahead the official Christmas week kicked off with a blast with several big announcements in the entertainment world. However for most people this week is all about seeing Christmas-themed shows, music and events. Although the NHL season is currently suspended indefinitely, there will be plenty of NFL action on Christmas Eve with Monday Night football. The NBA will also be partaking in the holiday celebrations with several games taking place on Christmas day. This includes a highly anticipated match up between the new Brooklyn Nets as they take on the highly rated Boston Celtics on Christmas Day. Tickets for these games are still on sale and available for those looking to get in on all of the holiday action.

However, this week in entertainment isn’t only about big Christmas sports events, it is also all about the holiday themed celebrations. This of course includes the Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas production at Madison Square Garden. This is a live entertainment event unlike any other that is sure to fill the seats of the massive venue each and every night. Tickets are available to the event now and will be one sale through December 30th.

To the extreme relief of basketball fans everywhere, the NBA has finally gotten past their disagreements and will be playing on Christmas Day.

And who are the teams to watch this year? The Miami Heat are looking good, with LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh showing real promise in this short season. The Dallas Mavericks are also a good bet, with an NBA title under their belts, although the recent loss of Tyson Chandler could prove a stumbling block. The Chicago Bulls are looking good, and will still be creating headlines with the NBA’s youngest ever MVP winner, Derrick Rose. The Oklahoma City Thunder, while one of the younger teams in the NBA, are promising a good offense this year. WIll it be enough? And the LA Lakers, one of the most celebrated teams in the NBA, has a new coach, which could mark a return to the winner’s circle.

The season this year is short, which means tickets may be tough to get for some games, but we’ll have access to the best seats long after they’re sold out. Don’t miss out on an historic season – check your schedule and get your basketball tickets now!
