Cleveland Fans Had A Tough Decision Between Cavaliers And Indians Last Night

Tuesday night will probably go down as the greatest night in Cleveland sports history.

The defending NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers opened up the season after being presented with their championship rings and raising the franchise’s first ever championship banner. Just next door, the Cleveland Indians hosted the first game of the World Series matchup against the Chicago Cubs.

The games overlapped for several hours, forcing Cleveland fans to choose between which historic event to attend.

Game 1 of the World Series went a little longer than the Cavaliers game, so some fans hung around Quicken Loans Arena to enjoy another victory on the big screen.

Both Cleveland teams delivered dominating victories. The Cavaliers topped the New York Knicks in a 117-88 win. The Indians posted a shutout in the opening game of the World Series with a 6-0 rout of the Cubs.

Cleveland hero LeBron James had a monstrous performance in the Cavs’ season opener posting a triple-double with 19 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds.

Indians pitcher Andrew Miller was the hero for the Cleveland baseball squad Tuesday night. The reliever took the mound late in the game and pitched his way out of a bases-loaded jam to secure the Indians shutout in game 1 of the series.

The fans in The Q weren’t there to see it live, but they were still pretty excited about it.

Before the Cavaliers won the NBA championship last year, Cleveland was starving for one (in any sport) and just couldn’t make it happen. Now the Indians are in hot pursuit of the city’s second championship in 2016.

Now that they have one championship banner raised, the city has hopes for more.
