Knicks, Nuggets Head to Playoffs

Carmelo Anthony’s new team and his old team are both heading to the playoffs: The New York Knicks defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 123-107 Sunday night to reach the postseason for the first time in seven years—just one season short of a franchise record. The Denver Nuggets also beat the Los Angeles Lakers 95-90, making the playoffs for their eighth season in a row. The remainder of the playoff bracket will be decided over the next few weeks.
