Warriors put Festus Ezeli in starting lineup for Game 7, bench Andre Iguodala

BY foxsports • June 19, 2016

With their season on the line, Warriors coach Steve Kerr decided to make a change to his starting lineup. Festus Ezeli will start at center for Game 7 against the Warriors, and banged-up forward Andre Iguodala will come off the bench.

Ezeli started only 13 games this season for the Warriors, who are seeking their second consecutive title to cap their record 73-win regular season. The fourth-year big man hasn't started for the Warriors in this year's playoffs and is making just his fourth postseason start of his career.

Iguodala tweaked his back during Game 6 and has been receiving treatment. The Warriors are without their regular starting center Andrew Bogut, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in Game 5.
