1. LeBron James is the best player on the court

For the Cavaliers to win game two of the Finals, LeBron James needs to be the best player on the court. In game one, LeBron was outplayed by Kevin Durant. That cannot happen again if the Cavaliers are going to repeat as NBA champions.

LeBron has been fantastic all postseason, but picked a really bad game to struggle against the NBA’s best team. He needs to do a better job of taking care of the basketball and getting his teammates involved.

LeBron put up an impressive stat line of 28 points, 15 rebounds, and 8 assists, but he wasn’t the dominating force on the court that Cavaliers fans are accustomed to seeing. He had eight turnovers and was a major part of their defensive struggles.

Kevin Durant lit up the Cavaliers for 38 points, 8 rebounds, 8 assists, and 0 turnovers. LeBron will have to find a way to elevate his game on both ends of the floor and outperform Durant.
