Randy’s Free Pick

The Los Angeles Clippers have shown signs of progress, but they're still in that hit or miss stage where you're not sure what you're going to get from game to game. The Phoenix Suns have Booker back in the mix, they're playing improved ball these last couple of weeks, and the overall feel has changed with the addition of Durant. The Suns have a pep in their step they didn't have before. I'll lay the bucket with the home team.

Randy’s Pick Phoenix Suns -1.5
