What to Know
The Bucks have enjoyed a three-game homestand but will soon have to dust off their road jerseys. They will square off against the New Orleans Pelicans at 8:00 p.m. ET on Thursday at Smoothie King Center. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this game.
The Bucks fought the good fight in their overtime match against the Lakers on Tuesday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result. They took a 128-124 hit to the loss column at the hands of the Lakers. This was hardly the result Milwaukee or their fans were betting on, as they were favored by 9.5 points over Los Angeles heading into this matchup.
The match pitted two of the league’s most dominant forwards against one another in Giannis Antetokounmpo and Anthony Davis. Davis had a solid game and dropped a double-double on 34 points and 23 rebounds. Meanwhile, Antetokounmpo did his best for the losing side, dropping a triple-double on 29 points, 21 rebounds, and 11 assists.
Even though they lost, the Bucks smashed the offensive glass and finished the game with 15 offensive rebounds. This was only their second loss (out of seven games) when they hit their own glass that hard.
Meanwhile, the Pelicans came up short against the Thunder on Tuesday and fell 119-112.
The losing side was boosted by Zion Williamson, who dropped a double-double on 29 points and ten assists.

The Bucks took their victory against the Pelicans in their previous meeting back in January by a conclusive 141-117. The rematch might be a little tougher for the Bucks since the team won’t have the home-court advantage this time around. We’ll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
