Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Lakers: The time is right to flip the script

This is familiar. The Patriarch of the Pacific, fresh off a nice home victory, getting ready to dispatch the beleaguered, panic-stricken division bottom-dweller. Yes, it's the L.A. Lakers versus the Golden State Warriors, but tonight it's different: not only are the Lakers the ones struggling, but head coach Mike Brown has just been fired.
