Friday Night will feature the Bucks PG Jrue Holiday and Pelicans SG Eric Bledsoe’s first time playing their old teams since they were swapped this offseason. Holiday has been able to fit in nicely with Milwaukee for Bledsoe as both teams have positives coming away from the deal.
Milwaukee has gotten off to the start they probably hoped for this season but still find themselves at 11-6, good for 2nd in the Eastern Conference behind the Philadelphia 76ers. Giannis Antetokounmpo leads the team as back to back reigning MVP with 26.8 points and 11 boards, both team bests. His running mate Kris Middelton has played well himself with averages of 21.9 points 6.5 rebounds and 5.9 assists with an impressive 44 3P%.

Milwaukee was handed back to back primetime losses to the hands of the Brooklyn Nets in a dramatic finish and Los Angeles Lakers. They have gotten back on track securing 2 straight wins over the Atlanta Hawks (129-115) and the Toronto Raptors (115-108). Milwaukee has no players on the injury report and should be at full strength for this contest.
New Orleans Pelicans
The New Orleans Pelicans are in a serious slump as they’ve lost eight of their last ten games. They were able to end their three game losing streak on Wednesday, defeating the Washington Wizards 124-106.
The Pelicans were once again led by Brandon Ingram with 32 points 6 rebounds and 8 assists, Eric Bledsoe added 18 points 7 rebounds and 4 assists, Zion Williamson dominated interiorly scoring 32 points on 12 of 16 shooting, Lonzo Ball chipped in with 9 points and 4 assists.
The Smoothie King Center will be a welcomed sight on Friday for the Pelicans as they will play their second straight home game after finally returning from a brutal 6 game road stretch out west. New Orleans is trending down fast as they have fallen all the way to the 14th spot in the Western Conference, only a game above the Minnesota Timberwolves. They were supposed to play Monday night against San Antonio but the game was cancelled due to COVID protocols so this will be New

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. New Orleans Pelicans NBA Prediction: Bucks -7.5
Milwaukee is feasting on more turnovers on the road than they have been at home. That’s the crucial statistic to keep in mind in their meeting on Friday night with one of the most turnover-prone teams in the league. Additionally New Orleans is one of the worst defensive teams in the league as they’ve given up 118 points or more in 4 of their last 5 games. Milwaukee is the best offensive team in the league and should be geared up to run up their point total in this one. I like Milwaukee and Giannis a lot tonight and they are the definite play in this matchup.
