CLEVELAND, OH (WCMH) — The Cleveland Cavaliers announced Monday that Tuesday’s game will be moved ahead an hour so that those going to the game can watch more of Game 6 of the World Series.

Tuesday’s game against the Houston Rockets will tip off at 6pm, instead of the originally scheduled 7pm.

Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert said the team fought hard to move the start time to 6pm so that fans wouldn’t be torn. Gilbert expects the basketball game to end by the end of the baseball game’s second inning.

The team is also inviting fans to stick around Quicken Loans Arena to watch the World Series live on the arena’s video board. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
