The Cleveland Cavaliers may be preparing to defend their NBA crown, but with 18 days to go until the campaign tips off, there is still time for them to have some fun.

LeBron James and co. took time off from their preparations last night to watch the Cleveland Indians face the Boston Red Sox in game two of their MLB American League Division playoff series.

The Indians went on to win the game 6-0, but one of the biggest cheers of the night came when the Cavaliers players - all sporting some form of Indians gear - appeared on the jumbotron at Progressive Field.

The Cavs players, including current free agent J.R. Smith - who is still yet to re-sign with the organisation - were cheering on their city mates as they defended their home field.

LeBron even went onto the field before the game and addressed the packed crowd to show his support for the baseball team.

After the NBA team ended Cleveland's long wait for a title, it would be an incredible story to see the Indians follow suit in MLB. The odds are stacked against them but a World Series in the same year as their inaugural NBA championship would cap a whirlwind 2016 for the Ohio city.
