It's hard to point to just one or two areas in which the Cavs need to improve. While the defense was better than a season ago, the offense looked like it took a step back. Consistency was nonexistent, as were the efforts put forth by players on some nights.
Cleveland faces some big decisions regarding the future of guys like Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters, Spencer Hawes and Mike Brown. The Cavs also need to decide on a full-time general manager.
No matter who they choose to bring back and who to part ways with, these five areas must be improved for the Cavaliers to make the playoffs next season.
