Randy’s Pick

The Utah Jazz have the rest advantage and that makes them worth a look in the big underdog role. However, the Denver Nuggets have been so dominant through 3 games that I'm not eager to step in front of them. The Nuggets blew the doors off a good Thunder side yesterday and now come back home where they looked good against the Lakers opening night. Until the Nuggets come off this high from winning the title and look like a normal basketball team again, it's probably best to ride the hot hand.
