CLEVELAND (AP) — Oracle Arena is set up for a concert, not a basketball game.
That is, except for a massive image of the Larry O’Brien Trophy, prominently displayed on the middle of the floor.Thousands of fans are expected at the home of the Golden State Warriors on Friday night, having gobbled up $20 tickets for an NBA Finals watch party at Oracle. Part of the ticket money is going to charity.

Game 4 in Cleveland will be shown on the huge overhead scoreboard at Oracle, the seats are all tinged in gold and a huge “Strength In Numbers” banner — the team motto — is on display as well.

Meanwhile, in Cleveland, some vendors outside the Cavs’ arena apparently are preparing for the likelihood that this is the last home game of the season. NBC Sports Bay Area, the broadcaster for Golden State games, tweeted out a photo where one vendor was offering Finals merchandise before Game 4 at a 50 percent discount.
