CLEVELAND, Ohio —
The Cavs and owner Dan Gilbert hosted about 4,000 Chardon residents for Sunday’s game against the Houston Rockets.
The team donated the tickets to the community, as it tries to heal following a school shooting that claimed three young lives.
Among those on hand Sunday, were Chardon High School students, their parents, and first responders. A few residents even served as honorary captains for the game.
The support helped push the Cavs to a 118-107 win over the Rockets. Kyrie Irving got the team off to a hot start and continued his momentum, ending with 21 points. But, the night belonged to Antawn Jamison, who led the Cavs with 28 points on eight of 16 shooting.
