"At the end of the day, if you want to compete for a championship or win a championship, you've got to go through the champion, and they're the champion", James said. "We did some things that we need to correct if we want to win the next game". "So just get back to work tomorrow and figure out a better game plan".
Now the Cavs, down 0-2 and back at home, will try to do what they've done in two of the past three NBA Finals: win Game 3 against the Warriors and swing the momentum back in their favor.
"We had our chances", James said. The Warriors beat the Cavs 110-102 to take a 3-0 series lead.
This year, McGee's postseason minutes have been inconsistent, as coach Steve Kerr has made changes at the center position according to matchups.
"I mean, I just love that support from my teammates, and I think we all just support each other in a real childlike approach to the game". For the team, another title would solidify them as one of the greatest teams in National Basketball Association history, and for superstars like Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry, another ring will boost their already stellar all-time resumes and push them closer to the top of the mountain.
Let's take one of the league's greatest guards and grab him while still in his prime at age 29.
Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue after practice Tuesday said getting off to a fast start would be critical. They got back to their roots in game two of the series and ended the game with five different players in double figures in points. So that's the luxury of having guys like that that you can always - any given moment, they can kind of go off for a game.

Cleveland is 8-1 at home in these playoffs, losing Game 1 of the first round against in but being flawless - sometimes dominant - since.
"It would have been a lot more satisfying if we won", Hood said. "We just have to come out Friday and not give in". "It's one of the best teams that's ever been assembled", said James, who is playing in his eighth straight NBA Finals and fourth in a row against Golden State. "It seemed like every time we needed a bucket he got it for us".
Gilbert was likely pleased when, 22 seconds into the third quarter, James drove to the basket, made a bucket and was fouled, promptly giving Cleveland its first free throw of the game. He also pulled down 13 rebounds, tying Kevin Love for the game high, and distributed seven assists in 43 minutes.
"It's all leaning in the right direction", Kerr said, adding there's "a good chance" Iguodala will play in Game 3. "And then he was the story in the second half as well, closing it out".
One reporter inquired about Kevin Durant's 3-pointer with 51.8 seconds to go, while another asked how the Warriors can close out the series on Friday night.
All of these events were downright ideal for the Cleveland Cavaliers: Stephen Curry's shooting game was very bad for most of the night, Klay Thompson's wasn't much better, the Cavs led by as many as 13 in the first half and some non-producers from the first two games of these NBA Finals were starting to finally give LeBron James the contributions he's craved. Steph was 3-for-16, 1-for-10, but as usual he hit a big one.
