🏀Knicks: Everyone — and we mean everyone — is loving this Knicks team right now. With their 106–100 victory over the LA Clippers yesterday, our beloved Knickerbockers will return to the Garden having won at least half of the games on their intimidating trip out West.

🏀Nets: The Nets toughed it out against the Denver Nuggets on Saturday, winning 125–119 and ending their four-game skid. This one came down to the wire, with the Nets overcoming a 21-point deficit in the fourth to take their first lead since the start of the game. The cherry on top? Keep an eye out for a Big Three reunion soon. *crosses fingers*

⚾️MLB: Despite some confusing rodent drama (apparently the boys don’t know the difference between a rat and a raccoon), the Mets shone in their sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks this weekend. They’ll ride their five-game win streak into a two-game series versus the Baltimore Orioles, starting tomorrow at 7:10 p.m. ET.

  • Meanwhile, thanks to Giancarlo Stanton’s bottom-of-the-ninth RBI, the Yankees captured two back-to-back walk-off wins this weekend against the Washington Nationals. Next up, the Yanks will face the Tampa Bay Rays tomorrow at 7:10 p.m. ET.

🏒Rangers: The Rangers wrapped up their season in Boston this weekend, beating the Bruins 5–4 on Saturday. Unfortunately, the Broadway Blueshirts will be watching the Stanley Cup playoffs on the couch with the rest of us. At least one New York hockey team is still hobbling into the postseason.
