For fans of the Cleveland Cavaliers (like myself), today feels a little bit like Christmas Eve. Tonight, the Cavs will kick off their 2014–15 season against the New York Knicks and for once the odds seem to be stacked in their favor—not just for the game, but the whole season. Of course, the return of Lebron James gives the team a huge advantage, but he also has great support on the team from Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, and Dion Waters, to name just a few key players. Without trying to jinx anything, this could be the year. A great side effect of having James back on the team is national interest and the subsequent television coverage. So instead of just the handful of games against the Knicks and the Nets, New York Cavs fans with regular cable will be able to watch 28 games, which are listed below.
However, if that’s not enough Cleveland basketball for you, you could purchase the NBA League Pass, which is cheaper than a ticket to any of the Cavs’ games in New York, or you could join the NYC Cavs Meetup group at American Whiskey, where they’ll be showing all the games this season and will have drink specials.
Tonight’s game starts at 8pm and can be viewed on TNT or the MSG Network. Continue Reading →
