Free NBA Pick:

Cleveland Cavaliers -3

Brooklyn F Kevin Durant has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL in his knee and will miss the next 4-6 weeks. These two teams rank in the top ten of the league in defensive efficiency, so the under is my lean on the total. The stronger play is on Cleveland to cover at home. Final Score Prediction, Cleveland Cavaliers win 114-104.
