LeBron James: Cavs ‘got to be much better’ in Game 3

LeBron James has been brilliant in the first two games of the NBA Finals, which still have been lopsided losses for his Cleveland Cavaliers.

While James has delivered — he had a triple-double on Sunday night in Game 2 — it hasn’t been nearly enough against the superstar-laden Golden State Warriors.

Kevin Love provided a needed scoring boost in Game 2, after Kyrie Irving did the same in Game 1, but almost no one else came through for Cleveland, sending the Cavs to a 132-113 loss and an 0-2 series deficit.

“I thought for the most part with the game plan that we had we tried to execute it as close as possible,” James said. “Much more physical today than we were in Game 1. And we forced them to 20 turnovers, and they still beat us pretty good. So we got to be much better too.”

LeBron James tested his injured left ankle during a portion of practice Sunday, but it’s still not known if he’ll play in Cleveland’s season opener.

James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
