Morning Coffee! Knicks To Face Celtics In NBA Playoffs

Good morning, New York/New Jersey-area sports fans! Let's get our first look at what is happening around the regional sports scene.

NBA: The New York Knicks did not play Monday, but they did learn who they will meet in the NBA playoffs. The sixth-seeded Knicks will face the third-seeded Boston Celtics in the opening round.

MLB: The New York Mets suffered an ugly 7-6 loss to Colorado Monday night. The New York Yankees open a series with the revitalized Baltimore Orioles tonight.
