Randy’s Free Pick
The Atlanta Hawks are playing their best ball of the season, but they could be without Young, who is dealing with an illness. The New Orleans Pelicans have been in terrible form these last 2 weeks, but Ingram is expected to play, and they’re at home, where they win by an average of 5.8 points. We’re only laying a bucket. Give me the Pels.
