NBA Notebook: Chalmers says loss to Chicago Bulls was 'personal'

The Associated Press

(Continued from page 1)

Easier said than done, naturally.

The Heat, Knicks, Spurs and Thunder are four of the league's top five winningest road teams this season -- which probably isn't great news for Chicago, Indiana, Golden State and Memphis, the lower-seeded clubs who will all be hosting pivotal Game 3s when NBA playoff action resumes on Friday and Saturday.

PACERS: Indiana is trying to revive its season-long secret to success. Play hard, play tough and play rough.

The philosophy has been a lesson in frustration for opponents. Indiana's rough-and-tumble play got Atlanta out of sync and out of sorts, leading to a six-game, first-round exit.

It got to the Knicks in Game 1 of this second-round series, too.

New York managed to rebound in Game 2, reverting to its more traditional style and turning up the pressure on the Pacers.

NUGGETS: General Manager Masai Ujiri was named the NBA's executive of the year, a day after George Karl was named the league's top coach.

Ujiri, the first African-born GM in major American sports, built the Nuggets team that won an NBA franchise-record 57 games and went an NBA-best 38-3 at home before bowing out in the first round of the playoffs.
