CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The Cleveland Cavaliers continue their preseason Tuesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks at home at the "Q". Tonight's game is the first one in Cleveland since the Cavs championship run in the NBA finals last summer. 

The team may be winless on the court so far, but they are winning the hearts of fans left and right.

During the Hawks game in Cincinnati on Oct.7, while waiting for a replay review to finish, LeBron shook hands with some young fans, then posed for large group selfie. 

On Sunday, in Columbus, LeBron and a few teammates stopped by Blaze Pizza and shared their visit on both Twitter and instagram.

Then Monday night, during the first half of the Cleveland Cavaliers' 91-81 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies at the Schottenstein Center, JR Smith, dressed in his Cavs warm-ups, got up off the bench and bought some cotton candy from a vendor.

It's a new season and most of the same players are back. The team though is dealing with multiple players recovering from injuries, including, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and Iman Shumpert, who haven't played a game all preseason. 

The team has not won a game this preseason yet, but they're not sweating it. Coaches tell us they're testing out younger players to see who fits best with seasoned players.

Tip-off against the Milwaukee Bucks starts at 7.

Tickets are still available.
