Randy’s Free Pick

The Sacramento Kings just beat up on OKC a few days ago, but I'm just not going to leave points on the table with a feisty OKC team that covers numbers, especially at home. The Sacramento Kings are the more consistent and probably the better team, but the Thunder are game most nights, and they put money in your pocket more times than not. Give me OKC.
