Cataract surgery went well yesterday, work got checked today, and all is well so far. We'll get the final verdict in another week. It won't stop me from being at Celtics vs Nets tomorrow night. Here are my choices for this coming week.

Wednesday, Nov. 27:

Kyrie Irving doesn't want anything to do with Boston, so he's staying home. Boston by 8 SLAM

Lakers at Pelicans, but there's been some uniform mixups here. This one could get nasty, with alumni from each team facing their old mates. Los Angeles (purple) by 11

Friday, Nov. 29:

Pelicans are not the bird of choice for Thursday, so they should do much better against the muted Thunder on Friday. New Orleans by 14

Defense? Is that something we're supposed to do? So say the Wizards. In the meantime, additional cooling is being installed in the Staples Center scoreboards. Lakers (gold) by 17 SLAM

Saturday, Nov. 30:

76ers slip on occasion, while Pacers want to prove they belong in the playoff picture. Philadelphia by 7

Monday, Dec. 2:

The Advent Wreath will be raised in church, and the 25-day countdown will have begun. Jazz and 76ers both hope for goodies under the tree. Jazz will have to wait for a while. Philadelphia by 11
