In photos.google.com, select your images. In the upper right there is a menu (three vertical dots) where you can select download. A shift+d does it too. That will put your google photos on your computer as JPEGS. On my computer they were put in a "photos.ZIP" file and I had to "extract" them.
With them now on your computer, you can then import them into Lightroom CC using the add photos button.
For my little test, I limited it to a few image files and it worked well and quickly.
Good luck and have fun moving your photos.

I suggest an alternative to Bill's option.
While this option is okay for a small amount of photos (Google Photos won't let you download more than 500 files at a time), you should instead use Google Takeout service: https://takeout.google.com/settings/takeout
Click "Select none" then select "Google Photo", choose your export destination (Cloud services or links in an email). Wait. Done !
Now, import to LR.
The dream would be to have a plug-in that just let you browse/organise/edit your Google Photos directly from LR, but I haven't found it yet. Help!
Thanks for posting an alternative. I didn't know Google had that.
Anyone can think of any other way for this?
