The game will be Cleveland’s first-ever contest in Europe.
But it won’t be the first time the Cavs have taken to the international stage.
Cleveland played against the Orlando Magic in Shanghai, China, during a 2007 preseason matchup. It faced the Miami Heat during a 2015 preseason game in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where the Cavs took a 122-119 victory in HSBC Arena. Forward Kevin Love led the Cavaliers with 25 points in 26 minutes played. Heat forward Chris Bosh took a starring role for Miami as he hit eight of his 15 tries from the field on his way to 19 points.
