Milwaukee got 77 points from the trio of Giannis, Kris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe in its blowout win over the Jazz this weekend. The Bucks have won three in a row and six of seven.
The Bucks have star power but they do seem to lack the depth necessary to win throughout the regular season and eventually into the playoffs. That’s why it’s a bit puzzling why there is talk of them trying to acquire DeAndre Jordan.
Then again, the defense needs improving, especially the interior where John Henson is lonely. Thon Maker is one of the worst players to actually get minutes in the NBA and he might be the very worst who plays 20+. Jordan would help out down low but at what cost? Milwaukee already has a terrible bench and the draft is the best place to improve it. The Bucks should focus on surrounding Giannis with quality players rather than making trades for high paid stars. I’m not convinced a trade is the best course of action.
New Orleans Pelicans
Anthony Davis did not play in his team’s last game in Houston and his status for this one isn’t clear. He’s been bothered by the same groin injury that forced him to sit out three games prior to returning for the last two. There’s nothing good about a nagging injury.
But the Pelicans played great without Davis. E’Twaun Moore and Jrue Holiday continued to score in bunches. Holiday had 37 and had his team in a great position to steal a game in Houston and end the Rockets’ winning streak before James Harden took over in the last two minutes.
Holiday has seemed to recognize what he can do when he is aggressive and the opponent’s defense is keying on the two big men of the Pelicans. Remember once upon a time he was a budding star in Philadelphia.
If Davis can go, the Pelicans will give the Bucks fits inside. If he can’t Boogie Cousins will still give them everything they can handle but Henson isn’t a bad guy to throw at him. Keep an eye on AD’s status.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. New Orleans Pelicans NBA Prediction: the Pelicans win at home.
This team is playing sneaky well right now if you haven’t been watching. It will be a shame if Davis can’t go but the priority is getting him back to 100 percent.
