Randy’s Free Pick

The Celtics just smoked the Hornets a couple of days ago, and there's no reason they don't do it again here. The Hornets have been a mess all season long, and that includes losing at home by an average of 7.4 points. Weird early start, which usually favors the home team, but I still have to back the Celtics and the chalk. I want nothing to do with the Hornets.
