Massive amounts of fans in Cleveland showed up at Quicken Loans Arena to watch their Cavaliers play the Golden State Warriors on television in Game 7 of the NBA Finals.

As the game tipped off, pictures began surfacing of just how big the crowds were. Fans are actually hanging out in the arena's parking lot to watch the game, which is being shown outdoors on giant video screens.

Admission to the event was $5 per person. Proceeds went to charity.

The Cavaliers went on to defeat the Warriors in Oakland, 93–89, for the first title in franchise history and first in Cleveland pro sports history since the Browns in 1964.
