Team News and Game Preview

The return of Zion Williamson has been pushed back at least two more weeks, which is a tough blow for the Pelicans. On the other hand, Brandon Ingram made his return against Minnesota after being out since the end of November, although he went just 4-18 in the game.

The Pelicans have scored less than 100 points in three of the last six games and are getting close to falling back down to the .500 mark.

The Bucks have won four of the last five games going into Friday’s game with the Pacers, and the one loss came to the Cleveland Cavaliers without Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton.

Both stars have returned, and the Bucks scored 150 in a win against Detroit and then held off a tough Denver Nuggets team, with Giannis scoring 33.

The Bucks have Middleton and Giannis back together again, and things are looking great in Milwaukee.

Pelicans vs Bucks Prediction

The Pelicans need Brandon Ingram to knock off the rust quickly, especially with Zion Williamson sidelined for the next couple of weeks, at least.

Unfortunately for New Orleans, Milwaukee is a popular pick to make the NBA Finals for a lot of reasons, and when both Middleton and Giannis are on the bench, they are tough to beat. Milwaukee cruises to a blowout victory.
