Cavaliers move up tip-off time to accommodate Indians in World Series
The Cleveland Cavaliers have moved up their tip-off time to 6 p.m. ET to allow fans to watch most of the Indians' World Series game, owner Dan Gilbert announced.
The Cavaliers were set to take on the Houston Rockets at 7:10 p.m. at Quicken Loans Arena, which is across the street from Progressive Field. The Indians will host the Chicago Cubs for Game 6 of the World Series at 8 p.m.
The Indians lead the series 3–2 and are looking to win their first championship since 1948. Over the summer, the Cavaliers ended the city's 52-year championship drought by defeating the Golden State Warriors in seven games of the NBA Finals.
LeBron James and several teammates from the Cavaliers were in attendance for Game 2.
