Ohio State football and the Cleveland Cavaliers have been pretty closely connected in recent years. They have both supported each other.
LeBron James has been on the sideline at Ohio State games cheering for the Buckeyes and has provided the team with gear. Urban Meyer has attended Cavs games and always shows his allegiance on social media.
Tonight, the Cavs will play the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals. Meyer made sure he shouted out the team on Twitter beforehand.
Here's the motivational tweet from the OSU head coach.
The Cavs will need more than just motivation to beat the Warriors in this series. Golden State is heavily favored.
Game 1 will tip off at 9 p.m. ET tonight.
ABC will broadcast the action.
