Randy’s Free Pick

The Brooklyn Nets look like they’re coming back to earth, as they’re losing their last 5 games by an average of 8.6 points. The Atlanta Hawks are healthy and are playing with a little pep in their step as of late. The Hawks are a team to watch closely down the stretch, as there’s some upside here. I’ll lay the reasonable chalk.
