Morning Coffee! Time Not On Knicks' Side

Good morning, New York sports fans! Here is your first look at the local sports scene.

  • The New York Knicks came within a tenth of a second of beating the Boston Celtics Wednesday night as amare Stoudemire's game-winning three-pointer came just after time expired. The Knicks were impressive, though, and showed they can compete with the NBA's big boys. Whether they can win playoff series against them is another matter, but they are fun to watch again.

  • The New York Rangers scored four times in the third period to defeat Pittsburgh, 4-1.

  • The New Jersey Devils defeated Phoenix, 3-0. Two local hockey squads winning on the same night? There is something that has not happened often this season.

  • Jets strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi has now been suspended indefinitely for apparently being the master-mind behind a human wall being set up to impede the Miami Dolphins' punt gunner on Sunday. Now, let's be serious here. Does anyone really believe Alosi did this all on his own, without the knowledge, consent or a direct order from anyone above him on the Jets' sideline. I sure don't. Alosi screwed up, tripping Miami's Nolan Carroll, but he is a small fish in the Jets' hierarchy and I think he is falling on his sword here to protect someone above him.
