Cataract surgery went very well. I now have eyes that don't need glasses except for reading. I can't wait to try them out on the ball field. Now for the rest of the picks.

Thursday, Jan. 30:

Before the season started, this game would have been a really tough ticket to get. Not so much now. Boston by 14 SLAM

2 very good teams in this one. I'll have to go with the home team. Denver by 8

Friday, Jan. 31:

Damien Lillard destroyed Rockets last night. Can Doncic do the same? Dallas by 6

Which way will the emotional hangover take the Lakers? Los Angeles (purple) by 15 SLAM

Saturday, Feb. 1:

Celtics are 0 for 3 against 76ers this season. They will not be swept, and I will be there to make sure of it. Boston by 7

Sunday, Feb. 2:

Happy Candlemas. Rockets have to face another young phenomenon, and I don't think they have anyone who can stop Zion. New Orleans by 5
