The Knicks will host the Bucks on Christmas Day, marking their third consecutive appearance on one of the NBA’s biggest broadcast days of the year, according to a report Thursday. 

The Madison Square Garden matchup will be part of a five-game slate, NBA insider Shams Charania tweeted.

The rest of the holiday schedule reportedly includes 76ers at Heat, Celtics at Lakers, Mavericks at Suns and Warriors at Nuggets.

After being left off the Christmas schedule in 2019 and 2020, the Knicks made their return in 2021 to host the Hawks.

Last season, they hosted the 76ers. 

The Knicks are 23-32 all-time on Christmas Day.
