The only "bold" pick I made was the Jazz beating the Clippers, but I can see them doing it if Hayward and Gobert have a good series.

 

I think the Jazz are pretty underrated.

This Celtics team is probably the weakest 1st seed in recent history.

 

I actually see the Bulls upsetting them.

Raptors are so consistent at being inconsistent in the playoffs. No way they beat Cavs

I think of all the things I predicted, Cavs coming out of the East is the most likely.

 

LeBron routinely destroys the Raptors. And the Celtics don't have the star power to keep up with James and Irving. They look shaky against the Pacers though, but they always seem to give LeBron a little more trouble than they should.

Cavs aren't very good defensively but they have been there before and respond good to pressure.  It's going to take a team taking a serious stand to beat them out East.  I just don't think any team has a collection of a enough talent or the x's and o's to beat them.  If Bucks beat Toronto we could see the Bucks give them issues.  I'd love to see an old vs the new like OKC vs LA back from a some years back.

The Cavs have no competition in the East what so ever.

Warriors have at least the Spurs and Rockets who will keep them on their toes. Pop is a great coach and will make GWS's life as difficult as possible.

 

The Cavs really have nobody who can challenge them. The East has been a joke for a while.

Washington might give them a run

Neither of those teams are even real challenges IMO.  The margin between the Cavs and the 2nd best team out East might be the same margin between the Warriors and the Spurs.  Team is overkill right now.

Spurs are better than Cavs. Ws are more talented than spurs but I can't say they can for sure beat them.
