On Monday, the Knicks unveiled a special orange-colored jersey for the highly-anticipated Christmas Day matchup with the Lakers.

The new look was designed by adidas, the NBA's official on-court apparel partner, to celebrate the league's 65 years of Christmas Day games. The theme is "BIG Color" uniforms that all 10 teams, including the Lakers, will wear on Dec. 25. They feature a monochromatic color scheme with solid color team logos, names and numbers framed with minimal accent color and a shimmer finish.

The jerseys are part of adidas' Winter Court Collection, which includes new warmup jackets and shooting shirts.

Fans can purchase the new pieces for all NBA teams at NBAStore.com, the NBA Store on Fifth Avenue in New York City, Champs Sports and team retailers starting on Nov. 15.
