Randy’s Free Pick

The Phoenix Suns are a complete mess and not a team you should be eager to back. However, the Nets are coming off a horrendous performance, and they're without Durant and dealing with an injured Kyrie. If the Nets are down two stars, they could easily lose this game. Not a game I'd touch personally, but it's Suns or pass for me with the free bucket.
