Warriors vs. Lakers gamethread: Byron Scott, L.A. struggling as Golden State takes aim at history

The Warriors host the Lakers tonight at 7:30 p.m. PST with a chance at history.

I was tidying up a few things around Golden State of Mind late last night in preparation for the Golden State Warriors' game against the Los Angeles Lakers tonight and stumbled across a tweet that made me do a double take.

And because I'm a Star Wars geek who can often relate any situation to something that happened in my favorite movie series, I immediately thought the following was a fitting response in advance of tonight's game (remember, it was late):

That was before I saw this...

...and hours after this:

I'm not sure what's going on down there in LA LA Land, but it stands to work in the Warriors' favor as they try to make history. It's almost getting to the point where I feel so sorry for Lakers fans that I no longer want to make fun of them.

Almost.

May the Force be with Lakers fans...sometime after tonight.
