Randy’s Free Pick

The Dallas Mavericks are going to be without two of their best players in Wood and Luka, and that's bad news. The Mavs aren't the most talented team in the world, and they rely on Luka more than any other superstar in the league. There's no reason why the Utah Jazz cant have their way with the Mavs here on their home court. I'll lay the chalk.
