— Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) March 12, 2019
The Bucks ride into this Tuesday night matchup flashing a 50-17 record that pegs them as the best team in the Central Division. Additionally, it also pegs Milwaukee as the best team in the Eastern Conference. However, the Bucks aren’t exactly cozy at the top of the conference. In fact their recent struggles has now placed the Toronto Raptors but 2 ½ games behind them. With that in mind, it’s clear that the Bucks need to get this road win tonight. Fortunately they’re going up against a pretty weak New Orleans team that is also struggling as of late. Moreover, the Pelicans will undoubtedly struggle to maintain Milwaukee’s pace tonight. This is because the Bucks rank 2nd in scoring and 9th on defense. Comparatively the Pelicans rank 3rd in scoring and a mere 27th in points allowed.
Players to Watch: Giannis Antetokounmpo (27.0 ppg, 12.6 rpg, 6.0 apg), Khris Middleton (17.4 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 4.2 apg), and Eric Bledsoe (15.9 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 5.4 apg).
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans fly into this evening’s matchup sporting a 30-39 record that ranks them 3rd overall in the Southwest Division. On top of that, it ranks New Orleans 12th overall in the Western Conference. At the present time the club is 8 ½ games behind the 8th seeded Utah Jazz. Judging by the type of season New Orleans has been having, it’s safe to say they’ll miss out on the playoffs this time around. But can they manage to upset the Bucks at home tonight? Seeing as how the Bucks are 3-7 in their last 10 against New Orleans, perhaps they have a chance. However, tonight’s odds don’t share that sentiment seeing as how lopsided the odds are here.
Players to Watch: Anthony Davis (26.6 ppg, 12.2 rpg, 4.0 apg), Jrue Holiday (21.2 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 7.7 apg), and Julius Randle (20.7 ppg, 8.7 rpg, 3.0 apg).
