Essentially the same as yours. The differences I have is OKC beating Houston in 6 games, Washington winning in 6 games over the Hawks, and the LA Clippers getting out of the first round in 7 games over Utah. Other than the minor changes I think you are on the money with the predictions.

This is about how I see it, except I see:

Washington over Atlanta in 7

Cleveland over Indiana in 6

And I could totally see Boston taking Cleveland to game 7 and Cleveland winning in Boston.

I'm also predicting a Pacers win in game 1 since Kyrie and Lebron are coming off nearly a week lay-off and will be a bit rusty.

I honestly hope that we sweep the Bulls to shut some of these analysts up.

The infamously incompetent Jaylen Rose even picked the Wiz to get to the ECF over Boston and as the Cavs second greatest threat in the East, even though there's no guarantee that they even make it out of the first round against Atlanta.

TP for coming close on that bold prediction. I'm not a big believer in Atlanta, but with Washington coming back down to earth recently, that seems possible. And when it comes to Celtics predictions, I tend to take what I actually believe and take a slightly more pessimistic view to account for subconscious homerism, so I could see 7 (although Cleveland being the lesser seed means they're more likely to win in 6 than 7.)

Cleveland over GSW in 6 --> Bron makes it a point to show he's the best player in the game again.  Rest of Cleveland shows up to provide him the support he needs to get past GSW
