We’ve got a look around at the best battles in the National Basketball Association this upcoming Thanksgiving week.

LAC at Dallas

Tuesday, Nov. 26 at 8:30 pm. ET

With a now healthy Paul George recently joining Kawhi Leonard on the court in Los Angeles, the Clippers look like NBA title favorites. But nobody’s making headlines like Luka Doncic, the 20-year-old Dallas Mavericks phenom whose nightly outbursts have placed him squarely on the early-season MVP radar. This is must-watch NBA basketball.

LAL at New Orleans

Wednesday, Nov. 27 at 9:30 p.m. ET

This is more than Anthony Davis’ return to New Orleans wearing Lakers purple and gold. Make no mistake — that’s a big deal. But Brandon Ingram looks like a certified NBA star since joining the Pelicans alongside Lonzo Ball in the trade that sent Davis to Los Angeles. Emotions will be high, as will the level of basketball.

Brooklyn at Boston

Wednesday Nov. 27 at 7 p.m. ET

An injured Kyrie Irving won’t suit up for his return to Boston as a member of the Brooklyn Nets. But the game will feature a pair of Eastern Conference playoff hopefuls tipping off for the first time this season.

Philadelphia at New York

Friday, Nov. 29 at 7:30 ET

The Philadelphia 76ers have their eyes on the NBA Finals after a heartbreaking playoff exit against the champion Toronto Raptors last season. Joel Embiid and Co. will take on the New York Knicks and star rookie RJ Barrett at Madison Square Garden.

Dallas at LAL

Sunday, Dec. 1 at 4 p.m. ET

Dallas Mavericks phenom Luka Doncic is drawing comparisons to LeBron James for his ability to fill up the box score. Meanwhile, James is still getting it done at an elite level at 34 years old. The two stars will square off at vastly different stages of their careers in a battle of Western Conference hopefuls.
