Randy’s Free Pick

I don't want to back the San Antonio Spurs as much as the next guy, as they're god awful. However, nothing has come easy for the Lakers this season, and you shouldn't expect things to change with them on the end of a back to back. LeBron James is doing everything he can to keep the Lakers afloat on a banged up ankle, and the Lakers still find themselves in tight games every night. It's Spurs or pass for me in this one.

Randy’s Pick San Antonio Spurs +6.5
