9-pitch inning for Bumgarner. If he was designing a way to finish out this game, that inning was IT.
I think Mo Speights was talking trash to his own bench after knocking down that mid-range jumper.
Ognjen Kuzmic checking in for Festus Ezeli. Steve Kerr doesn't want to waste Ezeli's 12-15 minutes when DeMarcus Cousins isn't on the floor.
Klay Thompson for Most Improved
Yes Bumgarner is starting the 7th and yes he was standing with the umpires for "God Bless America."
How many innings is that for MadBum?
After starting 0-for-6 from the field, DeMarcus Cousins gets a layup in transition.
Yeah, a healthy Ezeli is a big deal for Warriors
On the court: Curry, Thompson, Iguodala, Speights, Ezeli
Andre Iguodala makes his first appearance off the bench in more than 800 career NBA games.
Andrew Bogut is sitting on the bench, moving an ice bag back and forth from the back of his neck to the top of his head.
Did the Warriors just post-up Klay?
Festus Ezeli checks in for a heavy-breathing Andrew Bogut.
I dunno, maybe Bumgarner for two more, through the 8th... and then... ???
Wade Davis in for KC. Due up: Crawford, Perez, Blanco.
Bumgarner is owning this moment so thoroughly I almost expect them to play "Fire on the Mountain" at Kauffman Stadium.
Murmuring in KC after those two Hosmer swing-and-misses.
For Bumgarner's 2nd inning, due up: Hosmer, Butler, Gordon. If he goes perfect thru this & next, would give Romo top of order for 8th.
If Bumgarner goes 2 more innings (6th and 7th) then it's Romo and Casilla to close it out in the 8th and 9th.
Wade Davis throwing in KC pen.
Bumgarner probably has 2 more innings in him, ya think?
Herrera still in for KC to start the top of the 6th.
Real quiet here. Bum Quiet.
Bumgarner started the inning with a heavy dose of cutters, ending it with 93 mph fastballs.
Bogut just ran back the locker room to "clear out" one more time before the game.
GSW at SAC starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Green, Bogut; SAC -- Collison, McLemore, Gay, Thompson, Cousins. Out: Lee, Rush.
Andrew Bogut is in the starting lineup, with curry, Thompson, barnes and green.
Warriors lineup: Barnes, Green, Bogut, Thompson, Curry
Andrew Bogut looks terrible, but he also looks like he's trying to give it a go. On top of his stomach, it looks like his head hurts.
Bochy got what he wanted: Bumgarner on the mound in the middle innings with a lead.
Bumgarner faces Infante-Escobar-Aoki this inning.
Why warm up Lincecum last inning and then go to Bumgarner? I think Lincecum was the emergency guy there for Affeldt. Bumgarner is the bridge
Here comes Bumgarner.
Bumgarner will get 2 or maybe 3 innings here--bridge to the 7th at least.
Lincecum sits down.
Lincecum starting to throw again
Still nobody up in SFG pen. For now the 4th is his inning. Gordon-Perez-Moustakas due up.
Cuz, meet Kuz?
Andrew Bogut has made his way to Sleep Train Arena. His status is still uncertain because of an illness.
Herrera is in to face Morse.
Herrera up in KC pen.
Sandoval didn't slide. And beats it.
Figure one more inning for Affeldt, or at least one more batter--Gordon leads off bottom of 4th.
Every inning feels like the 9th inning.
The play goes 4-6-3-2:57 replay.
Challenges. Slide might be the problem for Hosmer here.
Middle infielders are playing some D... Bochy might challenge the play at 1st.
Oops: Make that Cain-Hosmer-Butler.
Affeldt to start the bottom of the 3rd. Hosmer-Butler-Gordon due up.
Posey does not look good up there. Am I allowed to say that?
David Lee and Brandon Rush are the Warriors' inactives, so Shaun Livingston (toe) could play in a pinch.
What a play by Crawford. What a play.
Think SFGs might need at least 3 innings from Bumgarner tonight. Maybe more.
Giants get 5 outs of Hudson. They are going to need everybody tonight.
That's it for Hudson. And it'll be Affeldt.
Another hit. Perez labored to get to second.
Shaun Livingston upgraded to questionable.
Harrison Barnes is expected to start, but the lineups could change based on Andrew Bogut's availability.
Lincecum also throwing.
Affeldt up and throwing.
No action in SFG pen.
Bumgarner is moving around, pacing... can't stand still.
Since Festus Ezeli (knee/shin) is on minutes limit, Ognjen Kuzmic will probably start, if Andrew Bogut (illness) can't play.
Lots of movement in KC pen now. Finnegan up.
Said first run would be large tonight--well, it's always large. Giants up 1-0, runners on 1st and 3rd, 1 out.
Bases loaded, no action in KC pen yet.
Bogut's Illness is unrelated to the one that kept him out of a preseason game last week. It's believed to be food poisoning this time.
David Lee is out tonight, and Andrew Bogut is questionable with an illness.
Andrew Bogut questionable with illness.
Thought Hudson's stuff looked very crisp in that inning--if anything, too much movement. 19 pitches, 10 strikes.
Malone said he spent some time with Klay Thompson during the FIBA World Cup this summer and was impressed with how much he's matured.
Kings coach Michael Malone praised the Warriors' preseason ball movement, especially the passing from the front line.
Aoki walks, still no action in SFG bullpen. /I'm kidding. Sort of.
Mike Malone says the Warriors have a great staff.
Yes, it's loud at Kauffman Stadium tonight. The way Game 7 ought to be.
55 degrees at first pitch.
Bumgarner just picked up a ball in the bullpen. No, he's not warming up yet, but he sure looks ready to start throwing when summoned.
Bumgarner is headed out to the bullpen with the rest of the SFG relievers to start the game.
They've run out of coffee AGAIN in the pressbox. It's Game 7. There will be 300 comatose writers in about 22 minutes...
Bumgarner looks relaxed chatting with Kuiper http://t.co/iYo3hjFZu7
Plus the case is still under investigation by DA office. But I understand this is an important story. Believe me, good reporters are on it.
Emailer wonders if the media is in cahoots with the 49ers to keep the Ray McDonald story silent recently. Well, there's a World Series...
Ned Yost: "Bumgarner is a great starting pitcher. We'll see what kind of reliever he is."
I love Game 7s, especially in the title round. But also aren't all NFL playoff games virtual Game 7s?
