The Pelicans are in dire need of a victory considering they are just 14-17 this season. Furthermore, the competition in the Western Conference is at an all-time high. Losing even a single game could put the team out of playoff race.

For the Bucks, the situation is not that bad. They are 19-13 this season and thanks to having veteran players such as Giannis and Khris Middleton, they will have an upper hand tonight.
