Even though they lost Demarcus Cousins the Pelicans are definitely still in the mix in the Western Conference. There is a lot of crowding out there though so any kind losing streak will put them behind the eight ball with a quarter of the season to go.
Milwaukee will look to build on an impressive, but exhausting win coming out of the break. They are good but not elite at home.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans continues their momentum by winning their first game coming out of the break, edging Miami by a point in overtime on Friday. That’s four in a row.
Losing Cousins was a huge blow but by now they should be accustomed to the fact that they need to play without the scoring, rebounding and playmaking that he provides.
Anthony Davis has to bear a lot of that extra load and he can handle it. He had 41 points and 17 rebounds in the win against Miami. The question is whether the rest of the team is up to the challenge.
Jrue Holiday chipped in 29 points and is a nice complimentary option but he doesn’t have that one superlative part of his game that makes him a major threat.
Rajon Rondo has paid off big time for the Pelicans as it was clear that Holiday is definitely not a point guard. Still with no Cousins his lack of scoring is more concerning.
The Bucks are a good team and they got a really good win coming out of the break on Friday night at Toronto. Seeing a lot of that game I can see how they might use it to springboard themselves into a good playoff position to avoid playing one of the Eastern Conference heavyweights in the first round of the playoffs.
Giannis is awesome, there is no other way to put it. He might not develop a true three point game but just inside the arc he is deadly and he only needs one dribble and a couple of strides to get to the rim. When they get full healthy – Matthew Dellavedova and Malcolm Brogdon, missed the Toronto game I can see them being even better.
Normally Milwaukee is stingy in allowing points. Toronto was able to score against them but they are one of the better offensive teams in the league and added a few in overtime. I would be a little concerned that there could be a letdown in this spot even though they are returning home off an upset victory.

Free New Orleans Pelicans vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
No line yet here and interesting situation with both teams coming off overtime wins.
Both are travelling too so will there really be much of an advantage for a home team that does not play exceedingly great in their own building. The line might lean me heavily to the Bucks than it should.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: New Orleans +4.5
I am hoping that the oddsmakers are heavy on Milwaukee so we can swoop in and back the Pelicans as dogs. They won and covered at home in their other meeting this season.
