CLEVELAND– The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors will face off on Christmas Day for the second year in a row, ESPN reported on Monday.

The marquee match-up is set to happen at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Last year, the game was played on the home court of then-defending NBA Champion Golden State, where the Warriors won, 89-83.

This season, the Cavs became the first team in league history to come back from a 3-1 deficit to win the NBA Finals and break Cleveland’s title-less streak.

The NBA is expected to release the official schedule next week.
