Watch highlights of LeBron James through first two games of Finals

McGee had the first two buckets of the game off dunks and finished a ideal 6-of-6 for 12 points.

The change didn't improve the floor spacing from a conventional sense, but McGee's ability as a roll man burned Cleveland over and over again as they struggled to stop his dives to the rim after he set a screen for the ball-handler. He missed all four shots and is now 8 of 29 dating to Game 1 of last year's Finals.

If the series opener of the NBA Finals showed how much impact the best player in the world can have when he's at his peak, Game 2 exhibited just how demoralising the best team in the world can feel when they're clicking.

Durant did it all in incredibly efficient fashion, taking just 23 shots for his 43-point haul. "Also, just being in the right spot on the court".

California: Will moderate Democrats flip Republican-held House seats?
But for the second straight election, Republicans could not get a candidate through to the general election for the Senate. Women made important electoral gain, and Republicans did not monopolize races that had many Democratic candidates.

Max Scherzer threw another immaculate inning
In the sixth inning, Scherzer recorded an "immaculate inning", a feat rarer than a ideal game, for the second time in his career. Teoscar Hernandez and Kevin Pillar homered for the Blue Jays, who were playing their first game at home after a 3-6 road trip.

Golden State didn't need Cleveland to shoot themselves in the foot or have to pull it out in overtime this night as they took the initiative by playing their brand of basketball and playing it well.

On the road, in a must-win game for Cleveland, which trailed 2-0, none of Golden State's All-Stars, aside from Durant, gave even a semblance of his normal production.

"There's way less nerves", McGee said via The Mercury News. "It's a lovely thing to be a part of it and to be a contributor in it".

Cleveland came back from a 3-1 deficit to stun the Warriors in the 2016 finals, but that was when Durant was in Oklahoma City and James had a different supporting cast. It's maddening to chase Thompson around and have him get shots off using his super-quick release, even when he's fairly well covered. This time around, Golden State weren't shy about doubling and bringing their help defenders a step or two closer to the paint to deter James' drives. "I didn't want to run in there and take a bad shot, fall on the ground (and) they've got numbers going the other way", Durant told ESPN after the game. When you're focusing on those three guys, other guys are going to get shots. This marked the eighth time Durant posted at least 40 points in a playoff game. Durant continued to chip away, providing Golden State's only consistent source of offense. The rim grew for the Cavaliers' role players. As such, the Warriors might already have a counter in mind for whatever anticipated adjustment Cleveland makes. That one might have been the most painful of all - Game 3 of the East semis this year, when the Raptors fought back to tie the game late and then watched as LeBron hit a running, one-legged floater off the glass to basically rip the Raptors' hearts out and probably cost their coach his job. "We just have to be ready". They're focused on Klay [Thompson], [Kevin Durant] and Steph [Curry] scoring. They got a little of both, and still it wasn't enough. I try not to think about just scoring.
