Turn Back the Clock, Turn Up the Orange!

The Cavs will host a series of SIX Hardwood Classics (HWC) Nights presented by Elk & Elk at Quicken Loans Arena throughout the 2016-17 season, turning the clock back to the years 1983-1987. Each HWC Night will transport fans at The Q to the mid-80’s when the Cavaliers played at the Richfield Coliseum, World B. Free led a ‘comeback season’ and a new look team took shape in ‘86 with Mark Price, Brad Daugherty, Ron Harper and Hot Rod Williams coming together in Cleveland.

Special in-game videos, music and entertainment will be themed around the era. On the court, the Cavs of today will rock retro orange uniforms, paying homage to the past. The bright orange jersey of the mid-80’s features the CAVS logo across the chest in white with blue trim. Blue and white also trim the sleeves and neck line.

The Cavaliers will first rock the HWC uniform at The Q on Friday, December 9th vs Miami Heat at 7:30 p.m. The next night, Saturday, December 10th, the Cavaliers will wear the HWC uniforms again as they host the Charlotte Hornets at The Q at 7:30 p.m. Fans in attendance on all Hardwood Classics Nights are encouraged to dress #ALLinORANGE and wear their favorite orange apparel to the game, to reflect the Cavs players on the court.
