Randy’s Free Pick

The Indiana Pacers have fallen off a cliff over the last week, and now they're on the road, where they lose by an average of 5.1 points. The Oklahoma City Thunder have all of a sudden caught fire, and now they find themselves in the thick of the playoff race. At home, this is a game OKC should win and continue to build momentum. I'll lay the chalk.
