Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin took his championship celebration to Cleveland for Game 6 of the NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors.

Malkin, who won the Stanley Cup with the Penguins on Sunday, was in attendance at Quicken Loans Arena on Thursday to cheer on his Russian countryman, Cavaliers center Timofey Mozgov. Malkin posted a picture on Instagram wearing Mozgov's No. 20 jersey and brandishing a large cutout of his head. 

Mozgov had a rebound and a steal in Cleveland's 115-101 win that forced Game 7 on Sunday.
