The Memphis Grizzlies are in line to be part of the NBA’s Christmas showcase for the first time. The Grizzlies will face reigning champion Golden State on Dec. 25 in San Francisco. That’s according to a person with knowledge of the league’s scheduling plans who person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the league isn’t planning to release the season schedule until later this week. The Grizzlies were one of two current NBA franchises yet to have a game on Dec. 25. The Charlotte Hornets are now the only club still waiting for its first Christmas schedule invite.
