Randy’s Free Pick

The Brooklyn Nets are down many key players, and them being on the end of a back to back here doesn't help matters. The Utah Jazz continue to hang around, and they're at home here, where they win by an average of 5.3 points and shoot 48.4 percent from the field. Given the rest edge and the injuries for the Nets, I have to lay the chalk with the Jazz.

Randy’s Pick Utah Jazz -6.5
