Lakers vs Bucks prediction

The Lakers could be shorthanded for this one with LeBron James listed as doubtful, while the Bucks are keeping an eye on MarJon Beauchamp who is questionable for this one. This is definitely a game where you want to check the lineups before tipoff, especially with an injury cloud hanging over James, but as it stands, I think the Lakers have been playing well and I like them to at least keep this one close right till the end.
