Article Summary:

For the first time in a long time, the Eastern Conference no longer looks like the little brother of the West.

The East has quality depth we haven’t seen in it in years, and there will be good teams fighting it out in the play-in tournament. Wizards

Playoffs first round:
Bucks over Bulls
Nets over Knicks
Heat over 76ers
Celtics over Hawks

Playoff second round:
Bucks over Celtics
Nets over Heat

Eastern Conference Finals:
Nets over Bucks

The Nets and Bucks are the class of the East, on their own tier above everyone. Can the Hawks turn that playoff run into regular season magic? I expect a step back from the Hawks and the Knicks. Wizards

Playoffs first round:
Bucks over Pacers
Nets over Knicks
Hawks over Celtics
Heat over 76ers

Playoff second round:
Bucks over Heat
Nets over Hawks

Eastern Conference Finals:
Nets over Bucks

The Nets and Bucks are a class of their own.
