Randy’s Free Pick
The Miami Heat are looking more and more like a team that's starting to figure things out, and they're getting healthier as well. The Atlanta Hawks remain one of the more disappointing teams in the league, and they win at home by an average of just 0.7 points. I know it's Atlanta on MLK day and there should be some sort of buzz in the air, but the Heat should win this game based on the form of both teams. I'll lay the bucket.
