Randy’s Free Pick

The Denver Nuggets are on the end of a back to back and dealing with a million injuries, but I'm not sure if it matters. The Minnesota Timberwolves continue to be hit or miss and aren't a team I trust against good competition. Also, the Timberwolves are still without KAT, dealing with a banged up Gobert and just watched a key rotation player in Austin Rivers get suspended. I'd need more than a bucket to consider the Timberwolves. Give me the Nuggets.
