In April 1976, Cavaliers history was forged 20 miles south of downtown Cleveland at the Richfield Coliseum in an epic seven game series that led the Wine & Gold to their first-ever playoff appearance and first Central Division title. The venue that hosted one of the greatest events in Cleveland sports history has since been demolished, but the memory of the legendary series against the then Washington Bullets lives on.

On Friday, March 4th at 8:00 p.m., the Cavaliers will commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 1975-76 season with a very special Miracle of Richfield Celebration presented by FirstEnergy when the Cavs host the Washington Wizards at Quicken Loans Arena. As part of the 2015-16 Hardwood Classic Series presented by Elk & Elk, the Cavaliers of today will pay homage to the "Miracle" team of 1975-76 who ruled the Richfield Coliseum and captured the hearts of Northeast Ohio and Cavs fans everywhere.

Members of the 1975-76 Cavaliers team, coaches and staff will reunite at center court during halftime, for what promises to be a very special tribute to Cavs history. Those scheduled to be in attendance (subject to change): Cavaliers original Owner and President, Nick Mileti; Head Coach, Bill Fitch; Trainer, Charlie Strasser and Cavs Legends Austin Carr, Jim Chones, Campy Russell, Nate Thurmond, Bingo Smith, Dick Snyder, Jim Brewer, Foots Walker, Luke Witte, Rowland Garrett, and John Lambert. Former Voice of the Cavs, Joe Tait, whose dramatic call of Game 7 sent the city into a frenzy will also join the team for the ceremony.

"The Miracle of Richfield is an indelible part of Cavaliers history, and to be able to have Nick Mileti, Coach Fitch and members of that 1976 team join us to commemorate an unforgettable playoff series that took place 40 years ago will make for a very special night for Cavs fans at The Q," said Tracy Marek, Cavaliers CMO.

All fans at The Q will receive a gold Cavs Miracle of Richfield Celebration t-shirt presented by FirstEnergy. The t-shirt compliments the gold throwback uniforms that the current Cavs players will wear on the court, similar to the uniforms worn by the 1975-76 "Miracle" team.

After the game, fans can tune into the Cavaliers Radio Network for a special broadcast of "Miracle in Richfield – The Cavalier Happening," a complete recap of the 1975-76 season narrated by Joe Tait.

Fans can join in the excitement of the Miracle of Richfield Celebration by visiting Cavs.com, where tickets for all games are always available.

The sixth and final installment of the Hardwood Classics Series presented by Elk & Elk will take place on Monday, April 11th when the Cavs host the Atlanta Hawks at Quicken Loans Arena.
