Protest at Cavs game

Several dozen anti-Israel protesters, many of them waving Palestine flags, gathered outside Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland before the Cavaliers hosted Maccabi Tel Aviv. Holding signs that read: “Hold Israel Accountable” and “Boycott Israel,” the protesters chanted behind barricades set up across the street from the arena. Cleveland police, including several on mounted horseback, kept a watchful eye as fans made their way into the building Sunday for Cleveland’s first exhibition game, which the Cavs won 107-80. First-year Cavs coach David Blatt spent six seasons coaching Maccabi Tel Aviv, which won the Euroleague championship last year. – AP
