Randy’s Free Pick
The New Orleans Pelicans are coming off a good week, but they've been shaky at best over the last month overall, so there's still some showing and proving to do, especially on the road. The Oklahoma City Thunder continue to quietly be that feisty team that finds ways to compete and win games, and they're at home, where they win by an average of 4.9 points. Only laying a bucket. Give me OKC.
