The New Orleans Pelicans are one of two winless teams remaining in the NBA. They have zero wins through eight games, where the Philadelphia 76ers have zero wins through six.
New Orleans will be facing a Milwaukee Bucks squad Thursday night that is 4-3. That’s good enough for seventh out East (as of this writing), but they have a long way to go before we call them a playoff team.
New Orleans Pelicans
New Orleans needs to do something to maximize Anthony Davis’ talent. The big man is averaging 30.9 points on 50.9 percent shooting, and he’s grabbing 11.9 rebounds, collecting 1.9 assists and swatting away three shots per contest.
The problem, of course, is that this team is winless despite the efforts of its All-World power forward/center.
To get New Orleans going, it must find more production on offense. E’Twaun Moore is the team’s second leading scorer at 12.3 points per game. Next up is Tim Frazier.
Simply put: Most casual fans probably don’t even know who those two players are.
Getting more production from guys like Buddy Hield and Terrence Jones will be crucial for the remainder of the season, but also in this contest.
Although Davis has arms and legs for days, the Pelicans don’t have the length to match up against the longest team in the Association.
The Bucks are an above-average defensive unit at this point in their process, but there’s a chance they look elite by the time this game comes to an end.
Milwaukee has too much talent on its roster to float around .500, and yet, that’s where this team stands at this point in time.
The key against New Orleans is to simply let Anthony Davis get his and contain the rest of the Pelicans.
Of course the Bucks aren’t going to let Davis score or block their shots, but instead of double-teaming him on the block and allowing open shooters good looks, strong one-on-one defense will be the plan of attack.
New Orleans has proven it can’t win without secondary contributions yet, so why give those role players a chance to shine?
The blueprint to taking down the Pelicans is a simple one against until those Pelicans pieces can step up and prove otherwise.

Free New Orleans Pelicans vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
Recent betting trends don’t point to either team having an advantage against the spread.
That’s what happens when you have one mediocre team facing off against one terribly bad team.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: MIL ATS
In this case, however, the terribly bad team is so…well, terribly bad…that we cannot give them a straight up win or a win ATS at this point in the season.
New Orleans has some entertainment value as long as Davis is suiting up, but counting on the team to perform is dangerous.
