Milwaukee is second in the Eastern Conference scoring 119.8 points while shooting 48.8% from the field. The Pelicans are 5-10 in road games. New Orleans is fourth in the Western Conference scoring 115.2 points per game and is shooting 48.3%.
Zion Williamson scored 32 points in his first game since being named a first-time All-Star, and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Detroit Pistons 128-118 on Wednesday night. "I didn’t know I was supposed to feel different, to be honest, because everyone’s been asking that," Williamson said in reference to how All-Star recognition affected his mindset on the court. "If you know me, my goal is to go out there and try to win every game.
"I think more than anything it's probably our defensive energy," said Bucks guard Bryn Forbes, who scored a season-high 23 points off the bench against the Timberwolves. "I feel like when we're locked in on defense, it makes offense easy. The offense just flows."
