Randy’s Pick

The Charlotte Hornets aren't world beaters, and their defensive issues raise serious questions on the road. However, what in the world have the Houston Rockets done so far this season to deserve to be favored regardless of where the game is played or opponent. The Rockets have been a mess at both ends of the floor, and at some point they have to show something before anybody can feel confident laying chalk. I'm just not impressed with what I'm seeing from the Rockets. It's the Hornets or pass for me. Give me the free bucket.
