Randy’s Pick

I considered the Los Angeles Lakers and the points, but they're banged up with Rui Hachimura out and LeBron questionable with a calf issue. The Lakers have also played their worst ball on the road, where they're 2-5 SU. The Cleveland Cavaliers are the healthier side, and they have won the last 2 meetings against the Lakers. We know the crowd will be out in full force whether LeBron plays or not. The line is reasonable. I'll lay the points with the Cavs at home.

Randy’s Pick Cleveland Cavaliers -4.5
