Opening Week Celebration

Cavs Tip Off 2012-13 Season at The Q!
Opening Week

It’s time for Cavaliers basketball . . . 2012-13 style! Fans are ready to watch a group of young and exciting Cavs talent, led by Head Coach Byron Scott, bust some moves on the court this season at The Q. The high energy action fueled by the award-winning game presentation and a lineup of premium giveaways and special theme nights promises to deliver the best fan experience in the NBA.

All the fun of a brand new Cavs season begins with an opening week celebration at Quicken Loans Arena that officially tips off on Tuesday, October 30th vs. the Washington Wizards at 7:00 p.m., followed by a matchup against the Chicago Bulls on Friday, November 2nd at 7:30 p.m.


Special Giveaways, New Uniforms, New Court and the 2012-13 Cavaliers!

Let the season begin! The Cavs will welcome fans with an opening night t-shirt presented by Quicken Loans and a 2012-13 Cavs schedule magnet. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. for everyone to enjoy activities on The Q’s concourses including music and entertainment, face painting, sign making, Halloween Eve treats and more.

A big part of the excitement of opening night is the premiere of the new player introduction video with Q-Tube flames to welcome the 2012-13 squad onto the court for the first time in front of the hometown crowd. The players will make a bold debut suited up in their new gold uniform that will serve as the permanent official alternate to the home white uniform and will be worn substantially throughout the season. The team will also be stepping out onto a new basketball court that is cool, clean, classic and ready for action!

Opening night will roll out the all the hoopla that creates the well-known electric atmosphere inside The Q and makes attending a Cavaliers home game an incredible fan entertainment experience. In-arena hosts Ahmaad and Nicole are back to keep the fun and energy going, along with the Cavalier Girls and Scream Team performances— and of course, the antics of mascots Moondog and Sir C.C. to keep everyone on their toes. Hip-hop artist Rob Base, known for the hit “It Takes Two,” will give a special halftime performance.
