"I’m trying to get into the darn elevator, I’m tired. Some security guy grabbed me," Francona said via Ohio.com. "He said, ‘Sir, sorry, you can’t use this elevator.’ I was like, ‘Hey man, I’m going to my room. I don’t want his (expletive) autograph.’ Kevin Love said, ‘ Hey man, he’s OK.’ So we’re talking, we’re going up, I said, ‘Hey how come you’re not giving me any security?’ He’s [Love] not doing nothing."
Francona, who is an avid Cavaliers fan, said he and bench coach Brad Mills enjoyed the game, which Cleveland won 114-111 in overtime.
"Me and Millsy went. That was my hot date," Francona joked. "That was fun. We had a ball."
The Cavaliers lead the series 3-0 heading into Tuesday’s game in Cleveland.
