Randy’s Free Pick
The status of LeBron is obviously a big question mark for this game. With that said, the Trail Blazers continue to underachieve, they're losing their last 5 games by an average of 5 points, and they have half their roster questionable for a variety of reasons. The Lakers are the healthier side and if LeBron plays, this line likely shifts in their favor. I'll grab the free bucket with the road team.
