Randy’s Free Pick

The Orlando Magic continue to cover numbers and play better than expected, but I'm not intrigued with them on the road in this spot. The Minnesota Timberwolves are playing some of their best ball of the season over the last week, and they're winning their last 5 games by an average of 5 points. If the Timberwolves are going to make progress in the standings, these are games they need to take advantage of at home. I'll lay the chalk.
