In Brief
Hawks draw a crowd

The Atlanta Hawks drew about 340,000 local viewers for both their emphatic Game 7 victory over the Miami Heat on Sunday and their disheartening Game 1 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night.

Sunday's game aired on ABC. Tuesday's was on TNT.

Those are big numbers for the Hawks , but for a comparison, Fox's "American Idol" results show on April 29 drew 582,000 viewers, the most popular show in Atlanta last week.

Trivia challenge

Which golfer has won The Players Championship the most times since its inception in 1974?

News of the day

Former Phillies manager Danny Ozark, who led Philadelphia to three consecutive National League East titles but fell short of the World Series each time, died Thursday. He was 85.

Ozark, whose streak of three consecutive NL East titles in the late 1970s is unmatched in team history, died at his home in Vero Beach, Fla., team officials said.

Ozark twice led the Phillies to more than 100 wins, tallying back-to-back 101-61 records in 1976 and 1977. The Phillies went 90-72 under him in 1978 for their third straight NL East title but lost in the National League Championship series.

Today's number: 6 The Kansas City Royals extended their winning streak with a 3-1 victory over Seattle. The surge has put the long-suffering Royals atop the American League Central.

Did you miss it?

The Rockets' Ron Artest was ejected from Wednesday's Game 2 playoff loss to the Lakers with 6:57 remaining after he pointed across the court at Kobe Bryant (below left) and made a gesture near his throat. Artest complained that he was elbowed in the throat by Bryant under the basket.

"If you are going to be physical, you have to expect to get physical back," Bryant said.

But Bryant didn't think Artest deserved to be ejected. Neither did Artest.

"I knew I was going to get a technical foul. The point was to let the refs know this guy was elbowing me. ... I'm not retaliating, I'm done with that," he said.

Did you know?

With his double in the first inning Tuesday against the Marlins, Chipper Jones reached 900 extra-base hits for his career. He ranks third in Braves franchise history in that category behind Hank Aaron (1,429) and Eddie Mathews (901).

Trivia answer

Jack Nicklaus captured the first Players Championship crown and also won in 1976 and 1978. It was called the Tournament Players Championship at the time.
