Randy’s Free Pick

The San Antonio Spurs have been a mess all year, and they entered the break, losing their last 5 games by an average of 11.6 points. The Spurs lose on the road by an average of 12.5 points. There's no backing the Spurs with confidence. The Dallas Mavericks should be getting more comfortable with new players, as I'm assuming they practiced a bit during the break. Big chalk, but it's Mavs or pass for me.
