Photo: Amy Schumer, Dave Chappelle Sitting Behind Cavs Bench Tonight

If the Cleveland Cavaliers need a laugh, they can just turn and look behind their bench tonight.

The Cavs are hosting the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Things are going as expected, as they lead by double digits in the first half.

During a cutaway, the TNT cameras caught a glimpse of Cavs guard Iman Shumpert standing on the sideline, encouraging his teammates. But Shump might have only been the third most-famous person in the camera shot.

That's because comedians Amy Schumer and Dave Chappelle have seats directly behind the Cleveland bench, and could be seen prominently behind Shumpert. Chappelle is wearing a tank top and sunglasses, which is pretty funny.

Both celebs have a prior connection to LeBron James. Schumer, of course, acted alongside him in the movie Trainwreck. Chappelle did stand up with LeBron a couple of months ago.

It pays to know important people.
