NBA fans are anticipating two big games on Christmas Day. The Detroit Pistons and the Indiana Pacers meet up for the first time since a brawl with fans led to suspensions for several players; and former teammates Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant go head to head when the Miami Heat play the Los Angeles Lakers. NPR's Alex Chadwick talks to Sal Masekela of ESPN.
