Boston (1) over Chicago (8) in 6 games
Cleveland (2) over Indianapolis (7) in 5 games
Toronto (3) over Milwaukee (6) in 7 games <-- Best series of the first round
Washington (4) over Atlanta (5) in 5 games
Golden State (1) over Portland (8) in 5 games
San Antonio (2) over Memphis (7) in 6 games
Houston (3) over OKC (6) in 6 games
Utah (5) over LA Clippers (4) in 5 games
Utah-Clippers is the only upset I have. And my gut tells me that this game doesn't go 6 games, in either direction. The Clippers are such a Jekyll & Hyde team that they either win the series by game 5 or lose the series by game 5
If Milwaukee was playing Washington or Boston, I'd pick the upset. By Toronto doesn't beat itself. Toronto survives- barely.

They were 3-13 the year before. And then lost four of their top free agents hours after free agency began- including 2 parts of their offensive line (the best part of the football team). We all knew RGIII was a gamble. And they traded down in the draft, passing up good players (not only Carson Wentz, but Joey Bosa, Jack Conklin, Ezekiel Elliott…) And while none of their rookies were busts… none of them overachieved, either.

On a personal level- we lost our cat Smokey to cancer. She will always be missed. We have two new kittens- Dashiell and Mystery- joining Pippen in our household.
