Randy’s Free Pick

The Denver Nuggets are the better team and should be favored at home, where they beat teams into the ground most nights. However, the Nuggets are banged up and even the players who will play are dealing with something. Also, the Minnesota Timberwolves just beat the Nuggets by 30 points a couple of days ago. The Timberwolves have won 5 of the last 6 meetings against the Nuggets overall. Give me the boatload of points.
