Cleveland Cavaliers Host 2nd Law Enforcement Appreciation Night

On Tuesday, January 28th 13,985 fans came out to Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland Ohio to support and honor Ohio Law Enforcement in the 2nd Annual Cleveland Cavaliers Law Enforcement Appreciation Night.

The Cavaliers played a great game against the New Orleans Pelicans, but unfortunately lost with a final score of 100-89.

During the pre-game festivities, the Ohio State Highway Patrol Honor Guard presented the colors during the National Anthem. In addition, the Cleveland Police Museum sponsored 25 children from the greater Cleveland area that were a part of the "High 5" tunnel, wherein the children got the opportunity to stand on the court and high-five Cavaliers players as they took the floor for pre-game warm-ups. Each participant received a special t-shirt and got to interact with players before the game.
