Randy’s Free Pick

Both teams are banged up, but the Brooklyn Nets are at home, and they should get reinforcements with Spencer Dinwiddie and Dorian Finney-Smith making their debut. The Nets do win at home by an average of 4.2 points, and they'll have one of their better rosters on the floor over the lat week or two. I'll lay the bucket.
