center in the city with about 30,000 visitors a month. >> you go there at 10:00 at night s 1:00 at night, 12:00 at night and the basketball courts are being used by the kids in the neighborhood. it's one of those gems in our city that's really a safe place for our kids and our youth. unfortunately like anything it's old. >> crews are standing -- are sanding down the floors painting the wall, resurfacing the basketball courts. the work is scheduled to be complete next month. this weekend marx the second annual silicon valley comic con with thousands of comic book collectors and tech lovers, they all come together. this year the convention is exploring, "the future of mankind. where will we be in 2075? they will be displaying their art along with pam greer and buzz aldrin. many are expect today see how the art, science, and technology will be working together. >> you also have this kind of
great intersection between fun and meaningful. so we have nasa and we have a lot of science and technology. so bringing those two things together is great. >> an opening ceremony is happening tomorrow with founder steve wazniak. coming up, crews are still at it trying to pinpoint the source of the massive power outage in san francisco. we will have a live report as pg&e investigates. but first though in sports. a's plan a little long ball at the coliseum. is it enough for them to get their fourth straight win? we'll have that and all of sports coming up next.
scott is in for mark tonight. the giants have been having a tough time out in the field. now more bad news for giants fans. >> yeah, you couldn't have possibly seen this one coming. it's like an april fool's joke that extends throughout the entire month and really isn't funny. the early season has been a disaster for the giants both on and off the field and now way off the field like on a dirt road in colorado. madison bumgarner sprained his pitching shoulder riding a dirt bike yesterday. he is on the 10-day disabled list with no official timetable for his return. i saw one estimate of six to
eight weeks, which is really just brutal for a struggling team. speaking of which, giants and rockies, bruce bouche first time back from that minor heart procedure. top two, eduardo nunes in the opposite field just staying in the yard. double the score for buster posey. giants get three in the second with jonny on the hill. you are cruising, right? cuido never giving up the major league grand slam and now he has. trevor story adds to the giant's sad story. it is 4-3 rockies. three batters later charlie blackmon. here comes hunter pence and i don't know what happened. lost it in the lights maybe. by the time pence goes after it, denard span comes all the way from center. and that is an inside park two- run home run. that kind of night and that kind of season. giants are feeling like this kid here with formula all over the face. they are now 6-11.
the a's are quietly enjoying some early season success. tonight a chance to win their fourth in a row and climb over .500 in the process. hosting the mariners. look at that paying tribute to the team across the parking lot there. that's kind of cool. the jerseys. this is cool too trevor puth going up top. fourth home run of the season. straight away center it's 1-1. 6th inning, alonzo showing uncharacteristic power. three home runs for yonder and the a's with a two-run lead. turn it over to the bullpen in the 9th. santiago castillo is facing danny valencia who hit it well, but not quite well enough. the a's win it 3-1 that's four straight victories. warriors have proven they can win without kevin durant. of course they would rather win
with him. durant as you know strained his calf. of course he missed five weeks near the end of the regular season with a left knee injury. now k.d. practiced today in hopes of playing tomorrow, but no guarantees. warriors will certainly be cautious with their big gun. >> i want to play. i want to be out there every step of the way with the team. but i understand how this is important. i want to be feeling great, you know, hopefully for a long run this post season. >> it is game seven in the finals, keep pushing. because we are not talking about anything that could damage his career. but while we're talking about it, it's something that could potentially get worse and knock him out for a few weeks, then it's not worth it. >> even without the dubs on the big stage tonight, a highly entertaining evening of playoff hoops starting with the rockets, thunder game three. there's your match up with
harden and westbrook, final minute of regulation. okc by three. harden the bearded one going to work. three out of his 44 points. it is 111-111. other end, westbrook had a triple double. here for the lead, not so much. but steven adams with a tip-in. 113-111 thunder final seconds. two for the tie, three for the win. let's try to win it right here. harden steps back, missed the shot. okc 115-113 rockets still lead the series two games to one. how about the clippers and the jazz? third quarter chris paul. throws it up, gets hacked and somehow gets it to go. that will be a four-point play. clips within two. maybe the play of the night. the drive and the poster. he had 40. gordon hayward is not suppose to do things like that. but they go on a 15-0 run
fueled by whoever chris paul. he had 34. despite that injury, clippers will win it on the road and lead the series two games to one. celtics and bulls, raja rondo out with a broken thumb. isaiah thomas, working on robin lopez, working robin lopez with 16 points, nine assists. celtics go on to win it and they still lead the series two games to one. that'll do it for sports at 10:00. more at 11:00. but now frank and julie, take it away. >> thank you. pg&e crews try to pinpoint how a fire started in a substation causing a power outage that left 88,000 san francisco homes and businesses without electricity. the power is back on in san francisco tonight after an outage toddies respecting countless lives. hello again everyone i'm frank somerville. >> i'm julie haener. the outage started just after 9:00 this morning and power
