Randy’s Free Pick
The New Orleans Pelicans are still banged up and that's led to them losing their last 5 games by an average of 11.6 points. The Los Angeles Lakers continue to run hot and cold, but they're healthy for the most part, and they need to take advantage of spots like this if they're going to sneak into the playoffs. The Pels look terrible without Zion. Give me the Lakers in this toss up.
