Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Cavaliers vs Bulls

Rival Team: Chicago Bulls

The Cavs and Bulls have a heated rivalry that dates back to 1989 when Michael Jordan famously nailed a buzzer-beater over Craig Ehlo. The rivalry has been going strong since with the two teams squaring off in the 1992 Eastern Conference Finals, 1993 Eastern Conference Semifinals, the first round of the 1994 NBA Playoffs, the first round of the 2010 NBA Playoffs, and the 2015 Eastern Conference Semifinals. There is alway bad blood when these two Central Division rivals get together, so you’ll see a good game when the Bulls are in town.

Cavaliers vs Pistons

Rival Team: Detroit Pistons

The Cavs and Pistons have been divisional rivals since 1978. However, things didn’t heat up between them until 2006 when the two squared off in the playoffs. The two teams met in the playoffs three times from 2006 to 2009 building a strong feud. If you want to see some of the most hotly contested games the Central has to offer then get tickets to a Cavs-Pistons game.
