Randy’s Free Pick

The Oklahoma City Thunder continue to be a feisty team that plays hard, but this line is strange to me. The Atlanta Hawks are as healthy as they've been in quite some time, and they've played their best ball over the last two weeks. The Hawks are shooting 54.4 percent from the field and 41.4 percent from three in their last 5 games. This line doesn't make sense. Give me the Hawks.
