While the Cavs defeat is still fresh in our memories, the team has little time to waste in looking forward to next season. There are still very high expectations for the team, with Vegas odds makers picking them as their early selection for the 2016 championship. The Cavs played their best basketball late in the season, and there isn’t much that needs to be changed to the roster in order for them to be successful again. Here are 5 changes that the Cavs could make to get back to the Finals next year.

5. Improve defense with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love on the court

General Manager David Griffin recently made the point that with Irving and Love in the lineup, the Cavs finished the season 33-3. Playoff injuries to both players created more questions about how good the Cavs team can actually be, even after a grueling 6-game Finals defeat. The truth is, though, that the Cavs became an elite defensive team after the two all-stars went out of the lineup. The team played good defense with Irving and Love in the lineup, but mostly in spurts and certainly not for an extended period of time in the playoffs. The success that the Cavs have in 2016 will largely depend on how well the team plays defensively when these tow return healthy.
