Morning Coffee! Playoffs? Yes, Knicks Can Talk Playoffs!

Good morning, New York/New Jersey-area sports fans. Let's take our first look at today's regional sports scene.

NBA: The New York Knicks are going where no Knicks team has gone since 2004 -- the NBA playoffs. The Knicks sealed the deal Sunday with a 123-107 victory over the pesky Cleveland Cavaliers. What the Knicks will do once they get to the playoffs (not much) is a subject for another day. Today, though, you can celebrate Knicks' fans. Your team has finally brought playoff basketball back to Madison Square Garden.

The New Jersey Nets are playing out the string on another playoff-less season, and right now are not doing it very well. The Nets lost their sixth straight game Sunday evening, falling to the Miami, 108-94. New Jersey (23-53) needs one more victory to double their win total from a season ago. With six games left, and playing the way they are, you have to wonder if they will get it.

MLB: Sunday was a great day for the New York Mets as they routed the Florida Marlins, 9-2, behind a great pitching performance by R.A. Dickey. Things did not go as well for the New York Yankees, who lost to the Detroit Tigers, 10-7, as Phil Hughes got roughed up.

NCAA BASKETBALL: UConn and Butler meet tonight for the men's national championship. Texas A&M and Notre Dame, shockingly, will meet for the women's title on Tuesday.
