CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The NBA regular season is behind us. It's playoff time. The reigning 2016 NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers say they have one goal in mind and that is to #DefendTheLand.

Signs went up Thursday morning outside Quicken Loans Arena with massive playoff banners.

  • Full window wrap on the north and west sides of The Q, including the arena’s iconic front window.
  • A banner on the east side of the arena representing the 16 wins necessary for a second consecutive NBA title that features numbers that will be X’d out following each victory.
  • A banner on the East Bridge that connects The Q to Gateway East Garage.
  • Additional banners on the east and west side of the arena.

Many local landmarks and businesses will also hang banners to show their support for the Cavs.
