Cavs coach Tyronn Lue is preparing to face either the Raptors or the Bucks in the next round of the NBA Playoffs. As Cleveland enjoys its time off after sweeping the Pacers, Lue will be eyeing his potential opponents in Game 6 of their series on Thursday. It sounds like the second-year coach knows how to host a party.
For Game 6, Lue told media he will be hosting a private watch party for members of the Cavs organization featuring 1,800 chicken wings. Lue said he expects between 60 and 70 people so that’s an average of 25-30 wings per person.

He’s expecting as big a workload from his guests as he’s asked of LeBron James so far these playoffs.
Lue also told the Associated Press the wings will be served “fried hard, sauce on the side.” While the Cavs players aren’t invited to this watch party, we’ll see if Richard Jefferson, Kevin Love and Channing Frye return to their burger-eating ways as they did while watching Game 5 between the Raptors and Bucks on Monday.

Many analysts have considered the Raptors as Cleveland’s biggest challenger in the Eastern Conference even though they are the No. 3 seed. After falling behind 2-1 with some embarrassing performances, Toronto has won two games in a row and can clinch the series with a win in Milwaukee on Thursday.
