Randy’s Free Pick

The Phoenix Suns are obviously going through it with their play, and they're still very banged up. However, the Suns are at home, have the rest advantage, and they're running into a bad Hornets side. The Charlotte Hornets are simply a bad team, no matter how you slice it, and that includes losing their last 5 games by an average of 7.4 points. The Suns still win at home by an average of 4.9 points despite their issues. I'll gladly take the Suns in this pick em spot.
