Randy’s Free Pick

This could be a letdown spot for the young Memphis Grizzlies after playing last night and playing a team that's going nowhere fast. However, the Houston Rockets are losing their last 5 games by an average of 18 points while shooting 40.1 percent from the field. It's impossible to get behind the Rockets with confidence. Give me the Grizzlies in a cofortble road win.
