Bring out the ugly sweaters once again because the Los Angeles Clippers will visit the Golden State Warriors in Oakland on Christmas Day. According to sources the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers will be meeting on holly jolly Christmas Day as well.

The NBA official schedule comes out next Tuesday, complete with a special on NBATV (3 p.m.).

During the offseason, both the Clippers and Warriors made huge changes to their teams as they prepare for championship runs in the 2012-13 season. The Clippers have brought in head coach Doc Rivers to replace Vinny Del Negro and acquired key players in J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley to replace Chauncey Billups and Caron Butler. Darren Collison and Byron Mullens have also joined the team.

On the Warriors side of the ball, they’ll be working to replace the likes of Jarrett Jack (CLE) and Carl Landry (SAC) who left in free agency. They’ve added Andre Iguodala, Marreese Speights and Toney Douglas to soften the blow though.

Remember this? I’m sure Blake Griffin does.
