CLEVELAND, Ohio — Even though the team will be on the road, the Cavs will host free watch parties at the Q during away play-off games.

Admission will be free, but tickets are required. They’ll be available starting at 10 a.m. Friday.

The first road game watch party at the arena will be for Round 1 games in Boston: Game 3 on Thursday, April 23 at 7 p.m.; and Game 4 on Sunday, April 26 at 1 p.m.

Fans can get tickets on Cavs.com, at the Quicken Loans Arena box office or at any Northeast Ohio Discount Drug Mart location.

As each playoff round unfolds, fans can get free tickets as they become available.

Each party will combine a Cavs game presentation with interactive activities on the arena floor. There will be player introduction videos, T-shirt tosses, timeout performances by the Cavalier Girls dance team and Scream Team hip hop troupe and special halftime acts.

Fox Sports Ohio’s Cavaliers Live co-hosts Jeff Phelps and Campy Russell will broadcast live from The Q with pre and post-game coverage.

The Cavs 1st Round playoff schedule is as follows:

Game 1 – Sun., 4/19 3 p.m. (in Cleveland)
