Free NBA Pick:

Cleveland Cavaliers -3

Cleveland F Larry Nance Jr. (illness) is feeling better but will remain sidelined for this game. These are the two worst teams in offensive efficiency, so the under is my lean on the total. The stronger play is on the Cavaliers to win on the road. Final Score Prediction, Cleveland Cavaliers win 108-102.
