Steve Kerr told reporters about Andre Iguodala dealing with bench role experiment: "He's handling it unbelievably well."

Tim Kawakami

2014 playoff team with by far the worst regular-season record in 1-run games: The A's at 21-28.

Tim Kawakami

In the postseason, KC is 4-0 in 1-run games and the Giants are 4-1.

Tim Kawakami

Weird stat: Both the Giants and Royals had losing records in 1-run games this regular-season.

Rusty Simmons

Warriors power forward David Lee said he's got a couple dozen family members making the four-hour trek from St. Louis to Kansas City.

Rusty Simmons

Warriors wing Brandon Rush has already purchased 24 tickets, and he's looking for more as he returns to Kansas City.

Tim Kawakami

People get mad at so many odd things on Twitter.

Tim Kawakami

(I actually broke the pledge last weekend with @baseballmarty, but it was on a weekend before I played golf, so it didn't count.)

Tim Kawakami

Breaking my pledge to stay off local radio until '16... I'll be on KNBR in about 15 mins w/the afternoon co-hosts, I forget their names.

Rusty Simmons

Steve Kerr on Andre Iguodala: "I don't know if he's going to start, but I know he's going to be in there for us at the end (of games)."

Rusty Simmons

Mo Speights is in Florida for his grandfather's funeral. He's expected to rejoin the team for Sunday's game vs. Houston.

Rusty Simmons

As expected, Andrew Bogut and David Lee will be back in the lineup tonight vs. Miami. Kerr is still trying to decide whether to sit Iguodala

Rusty Simmons

It took me a couple of hours, by I finally found an ode to the World Series-bound Kansas City Royals. http://t.co/Yi7xr4TjKx

Tim Kawakami

NFC West teams aren't boring. Well, except the Rams.

Tim Kawakami

Sometimes a guy who can do all the exotic things just doesn't want to do the regular things--like run a route correctly in time with his QB.

Marcus Thompson

My fantasy team agrees RT @AdamSchefter: Seahawks traded WR Percy Harvin to Jets, as @JayGlazer reported. Seattle felt Harvin was not a fit

Tim Kawakami

I noted there were issues in Seattle a few weeks ago and got some people got upset with me. No way I expected this, though.

Diamond Leung

Steve Kerr called for his first technical foul in the third quarter, putting Warriors down by 14 points. Warriors go on to beat Denver.

Last night a homeless man pushing cart near AT&T screamed toward crowd of fans "I wanna get wasted too! Go Giants!" Someone gave him a beer

Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala bobbleheads next week: instagram.com/p/uPZfiChA5h/

Andre Iguodala

Monkey see... Monkey do

Tim Kawakami

One of Bochy's greatest strengths is that he manages the playoffs very differently, but his players feel he's treating them the same.

Tim Kawakami

Bochy out-maneuvered everybody on that list possibly except Leyland. Could Yost be the toughest match-up? Did I just type that?

Tim Kawakami

Bochy has faced Cox, Manuel, Washington, Baker, Matheny, Leyland, Hurdle, Williams and Matheny again in playoff match-ups. Now it's Yost.

If Vogelsong pitches well in Game 4, Bochy has Petit to use whenever. If Vogelsong doesn't pitch well, Bochy still has Petit to go long.

Last night we had a great comeback on the last quarter of the game, nice victory over the Nuggets 104 x 101!!! instagram.com/p/uQPhIqHnpB/

Tim Kawakami

Think of the Wacha move this way: Would Bruce Bochy have ever put his season in the hands of pitcher who hadn't yet pitched in the series?

Tim Kawakami

From overnight: After Travis Ishikawa botched a fly ball that cost a run, his teammates told him his time would come. bit.ly/1nrBg2r

Looking back at Preseason Game 4: Warriors 104, Denver 101 blog.sfgate.com/warriors/2014/…

Tim Kawakami

Going to sleep now; I know I'll have nightmares about canceling the wrong flight and discovering I'm late for a 6 am flight to Baltimore.

Tim Kawakami

Why I think Lincecum probably keeps his spot: I don't see Bochy going w/less than 12 pitchers & #55 is still likely ahead of other relievers

Tim Kawakami

Now the curious question: Does Lincecum get a spot on the World Series roster? I'd think yes, but it's not 100% after 0 appearances so far.

Tim Kawakami

But yeah, I'd expect Bumgarner to be the guy in Game 1. He's the leader of the staff, he deserves it and you know he'll want it.

Tim Kawakami

So it'll probably be Bumgarner/Peavy in Games 1 and 2, Hudson in Game 3 and Vogelsong in Game 4. Similar or identical to the NLCS order.

Tim Kawakami

It'll depend on how Bumgarner feels over the next few days. If he's a little fatigued, they can give him Game 2 on extra rest.

Tim Kawakami

Remember, the Giants can go with Bumgarner on regular rest for Game 1 in KC on Tuesday. But they might consider flipping Peavy in there...

Tim Kawakami

It all started with Zito: The Giants have won 7 of their last 8 NLCS games, all vs. St. Louis.

Marcus Thompson

The Giants are who we thought they were - too good not to be in World Series. (Plus some notes from champagne room) bit.ly/1CtXfY5

Tim Kawakami

There is intimidation in that. It's a different kind of intimidation, but it's real and the Giants have it. But the Royals have had it, too.

Tim Kawakami

But Matheny probably felt what I felt last night & now: Whatever he did, in a tight game, the Giants were going to figure out how to win.

Tim Kawakami

SFG bullpen was tired, Matheny probably should've bet on just extending the game as long as possible. That means go with your best.

Tim Kawakami

Could say a lot about Matheny's decisions in this one--going with Wacha, not Rosenthal, in the 9th was very questionable...

Diamond Leung

Iguodala joked to reporters coming off bench "sucks." "gonna have a long talk w/ Coach. I'm tired of it..not going to put up w/ it anymore."

Nemanja Nedovic

Dry run like the store was closed. No beer was gonna touch me yo/ Their aim was off, their spray slow, and I was dodging droplets like Neo

Travis Ishikawa and Michael Morse became instant Giants legends tonight, because it was just their turn: bit.ly/1nrBg2r

Geoff Lepper

You need a full preseason to get into proper tank mode. RT @Bill Oram: Lakers have dropped last three preseason games by avg. of 29.6 points

That's class. MT @mercbrownie: Man who got Ishikawa's HR ball brought it back to its owner. Frank Burke of Oakville. instagram.com/p/uPWrPmp88k/

Wish we could be here longer but the preseason continues. Thank you to everyone once again. Wheels up to KC ✈️✈️

Harrison Barnes

I want to thank everyone that came out tonight. The support from the state has been unbelievable since I left HS n dont take it for granted

Harrison Barnes

It's a blessing to come back home and see old friends and family. Never thought I'd have the opportunity to play here in an NBA uniform.

Marcus Thompson

Ha! RT @k_mancio: @Marcus Thompson it is your job to get drenched in beer and report back to us twitter folk

Marcus Thompson

Definitely will. I don't drink RT @fitchris86: will u try to avoid drinking a beer tho?

Marcus Thompson

Who does that? Nobody has time to change clothes on deadline RT @Jayzon481: didn't bring a change of clothes? #rookie

David Lee

Great season by the @Cardinals, congrats to the Giants for moving on...

Monte Poole

Meanwhile . . . after so many pitches outside strike zone . . . Oakland's #athletics wonder why Travis Ishikawa swung. #Giants

Matt Steinmetz

How many Bumgarner going to be throwing down at one time tonight? He's gotta do six, right?

Marcus Thompson

Let's see if I can avoid getting drenched in beer

Leandro Barbosa

Thank you Iowa...Great win tonight over the Nuggets, 104-101, team work good to get a comeback in the 4th quarter instagram.com/p/uPQriDHnpn/

Marcus Thompson

Why was Wacha still in there. He was clearly done

Marcus Thompson

You knew it was coming. Just a matter of how. This time, it was Ishikawa

Tim Kawakami

All they do is hit homers. My God, this team.

Tim Kawakami

This game's so good I forgot I have to write a column. Fairly soon and very quickly.

Tim Kawakami

It'll be Wacha to start the bottom of the 9th vs. Sandoval, Pence Belt.

Tim Kawakami

I think Posey sort of requested this pitching change. Affeldt now in.

Tim Kawakami

Taveras pinch-hitting.

Tim Kawakami

Wacha is already at 70 pitches and he hasn't pitched yet.

Tim Kawakami

Bourjos is on-deck due to the double-switch.

Marcus Thompson

For those who didn't see, grounder deflected off Panda's glove. Crawford, backing him up, got it and STILL got throw to 2B in time for out

Marcus Thompson

What a play by Crawford to get the force

Marcus Thompson

Since no one was up, Casilla pretty much has to get Wong out.

Tim Kawakami

And Strickland heading to the pen again.

Tim Kawakami

Now Affeldt heading to the bullpen.

Tim Kawakami

Giants bullpen is quiet. For now, this is Casilla's inning.

Tim Kawakami

Wacha joins Rosenthal in the STL pen.

Tim Kawakami

Morse HR ties the game and also means it's Casilla pitching in the 9th, not Strickland.

Marcus Thompson

Wainwright was dealing. @Mu_Zak and @B_Trail707 said Matheny would pay for taking him out. Three pitches later, Morse goes yard
