NEW YORK (AP) -- Dallas Mavericks All-Star Dirk Nowitzki and Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel have been honored by the Pro Basketball Writers Association for their success on the court and cooperation with fans and media.

Nowitzki was presented with the Magic Johnson Award, beating out five other finalists. Vogel was one of five finalists in his category for the award, named for former Houston Rockets coach Rudy Tomjanovich.

The awards were announced Friday by the PBWA.

Also, the public relations staff of the Golden State Warriors received the Brian McIntyre Award for the second time. They joined the Indiana Pacers as the only two-time winners of the award, which is named for the longtime NBA PR official and recognizes the staff that best exemplifies the standards of professionalism and excellence.
