What channel is 76ers vs. Bucks on today? Time, TV schedule for NBA Christmas game

Sporting News

The 76ers and Bucks will meet at the Wells Fargo Center on Christmas Day for what could be an Eastern Conference finals preview.

Reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo has pushed Milwaukee back to the top of the East with help from a strong supporting cast. The Bucks lead the NBA in both point differential and net rating, and they look like a legitimate title contender with notable wins over the Rockets, Clippers and Lakers.

Things haven't gone as smoothly for the Sixers. They tumbled down the standings after a recent three-game losing streak, and All-Star center Joel Embiid claimed the team was "playing scared." A win over the Bucks could do wonders for Philadelphia's morale heading into the new year.
