Randy’s Free Pick

The Oklahoma City Thunder remain a feisty team that's playing good ball lately, and they have the rest advantage along home court. There's a lot to like about OKC in this spot. With that said, the Cavs are the better team no matter how you slice it, and them being on the end of a back to back doesn't bother me much. We're getting the better team in a near pick em spot. Give me the Cavs.
