J.J. Redick dropped 20 points in the third quarter and the New Orleans Pelicans defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 124-103 in a scrimmage at the NBA bubble in Orlando on Monday night. The Pelicans still didn’t have Zion Williamson but it didn’t matter, New Orleans dominating on offense against the Eastern Conference favorites. The Pels got solid contributions from throughout the lineup in the win.

The Bucks still didn’t have Eric Bledsoe in the lineup, so a bit shorthanded in this loss. Giannis Antetokounmpo went bonkers, which is obviously a good sign for Milwaukee. You can’t take much from these losses really, it’s a scrimmage. Khris Middleton was a bit off shooting the ball, but he’ll be fine once the season starts. Here are some stats for each team:

New Orleans Pelicans stats

Brandon Ingram: 14 points
Lonzo Ball: 12 points, 5 rebounds
Jrue Holiday: 14 points
Jaxson Hayes: 17 points

Milwaukee Bucks stats

Giannis Antetokounmpo: 30 points, 8 rebounds
Khris Middleton: 16 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists
Brook Lopez: 10 points, 5 rebounds
