INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett sends a message to the Cleveland Cavaliers ahead of Game 6 against the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Friday.

Mayor Hogsett issued an executive order Thursday outlawing goaltending in Indianapolis.

The order is in reaction to a key moment in Game 5, with the score tied at 95, when Victor Oladipo was at the rim and LeBron James blocked his shot.

Oladipo and Pacers fans say it should have been called as goaltending.

The Cavs went on to win the game, 98-95, and now lead the series 3-2.

Mayor Hogsett also proclaimed Friday "Blue and Gold Day" in the city of Indianapolis.

Everyone is encouraged to wear their Pacers gear to help rally the team to victory over the Cavs.
