LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers suffered their second straight loss against Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 the 2016 NBA Finals Sunday night (Jun 4), with a final score of 77 to 110.
In Game 1, the final score was 89 (Cleveland) to 104 (Golden State). These are absolutely terrible final scores for the first two games, signaling that LeBron could lose his second straight Finals after leaving the Miami Heat in 2014.
And the way Cleveland has been playing so far, Golden State could very well sweep them and win Game 4 … IN CLEVELAND. The odds are already in the Warriors’ favor to win the series, but if the Cavaliers want to at least make it past four games, they need to tighten up, and fast.
So what does LeBron and his team need to help propel them beyond their 2-game deficit?
According to Cleveland/LeBron fans and apologists on Twitter, the Cavaliers need help. Or, more specifically, “Lebron needs help.”
I can already hear LeBron Apologists preparing their new excuse: HE JUST DOESN'T HAVE ENOUGH HELP OFF THE BENCH. Baloney.

Lebron needs a team who can help not a guard who doesn't know how to handle big games

Lebron needs help man. He was dominant in Miami because he had a TEAM. Right now he has a roster of good players.

I'm sure LeBron will get roasted after this series is over, and he hasn't played great thus far, but he has absolutely no help anywhere.

People saying LeBron is getting no help which is true, but y'all told me this was his best supporting cast ever? Interesting

When they win its because of Lebron , when they lose he doesn't have enough help. Weren't they 10-0 to start the playoffs ? Give me a break
