Randy’s Pick

The Houston Rockets are young and talented, but they still have issues finishing games, and their effort against the Magic was concerning. The Rockets got blown out the second they made it a game, and being able to blow a game that quickly like that is an issue. The San Antonio Spurs went toe to toe with the Mavericks in their opener and despite the loss it should be a confidence boost. I'd also assume Victor Wembanyama won't be in foul trouble like he was. The Spurs will have a packed house again. I'll lay the bucket with the home team.
