LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers bested the Milwaukee Bucks in what could be a potential NBA Finals preview. The Lakers’ loss comes after a defeat to one of their top threats in the Eastern Conference, the Brooklyn Nets.

Bucks star Khris Middleton was asked if they saw the game against the defending champs as a proving ground for their status as legitimate contenders, especially after already flaming out in two consecutive postseasons. The multi-faceted wing didn’t look too much into the loss and emphasized that the playoffs is all that matters for them.
