Randy’s Free Pick

The Sacramento Kings are probably the better team, but they just played a marathon game on Friday and there could be some tired legs here. Also, let's not act like the Oklahoma City Thunder are a pushover as they continue to find ways to win and cover numbers, and they win at home by an average of 5.8 points. OKC is 18-11 ATS at home and 35-21-3 ATS on the season. Give me the points.
