No, you can't provoke opportunity attacks this way. From the Player's Basic Rules, page 74: You also don’t provoke an opportunity attack when you teleport or when someone or something moves you without using your movement, action, or reaction. For example, you don’t provoke an opportunity attack if an explosion hurls you out of a foe’s reach or ...

As you've alluded to in your question, the RAW as far as they go are: If a flying creature is knocked prone, has its speed reduced to 0, or is otherwise deprived of the ability to move, the creature falls, unless it has the ability to hover or is being held aloft by magic, such as the fly spell (PHB 191) At the end of the fall, a creature takes 1d6 ...

The Constrict ability happens as soon as the yuan-ti hits, and the cleric is grappled by the yuan-ti. Constrict. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (2d6 + 3) bludgeoning damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 13). Until this grapple ends, the target is restrained, and the yuan-ti can’t constrict another ...

The is no general rule (that I can find) regarding involuntary movement. However, Jeremy Crawford - one of the lead designers for 5e and official go-to-guy for rules clarification - has said: When a spell's description uses "enter" in relation to an AoE, the entering has to be voluntary only if the text says so.

The creature lands prone, unless it avoids taking damage from the fall. and If a flying creature is knocked prone, has its speed reduced to 0, or is otherwise deprived of the ability to move, the creature ...

You start falling when you go prone. The only part of the RAW that covers this is a very brief section on page 183 of the PHB, from it we can assert this: She starts falling immediately, on Bob's turn. She hits the ground immediately as well, on Bob's turn. There's not a lot to go on here, other than that, falling happens, and that there is no time so ...

Yes, they can continue moving if they have any movement left. An opportunity action takes place before the target finishes its action. After the opportunity attack, the creature resumes its action. [DDI] In order to stop moving you need something like a Fighter's Combat Superiority that specifically stops them from moving farther with that action. ...

What Happens if the Rider undergoes forced movement? PHB pg 198 also has a partially relevant sentence: If you’re knocked prone while mounted, you must make the same saving throw. While none of your above examples involve the 'Prone' status affliction, we can reason that under normal circumstances, if something were about to try and force move you ...

As other people have pointed out, per RAW, there are no set rules for actual fall speed outside of certain spells which are meant to slow your fall speed. Also, something I don't think anyone else has picked up on yet: At the end of the fall, a creature takes 1d6 bludgeoning damage for every 10 feet it fell... (PHB 183) This actually would imply that ...
