Randy’s Pick

The Denver Nuggets are fabulous at home, where they average 118.4 points on 50.8 percent shooting from the field, and their size gave the Heat problems. The Heat didn't do much offensively in game 1, but they had a ton of open looks, and it feels like they should be comfortable here as well. Also, there's a chance Tyler Herro is cleared for this game, which gives the Heat its best pure scorer back. I believe we're going to see a higher scoring game now that tams are a bit more comfortable and the jitters are out of the way. Herro possibly playing is just a bonus. Give me the over.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
