James, Harden top All-NBA teams, Thomas lands on second team

Harden was the only player to receive 100 out of 100 first-team votes.

Westbrook wasn't a unanimous choice despite setting an National Basketball Association single-season record of 42 triple-doubles.

Harden has made All-NBA teams four of his five seasons with Houston.

The NBA announced that Wall had earned All NBA Third Team honors on Thursday, with the Wizards guard receiving the fifth-most votes among players at his position from NBA media members.

Cavaliers: James is first player with at least 30 points in eight straight playoff games since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1970.

James' Cavaliers absolutely dominated the Celtics in every aspect on Friday night en route to a 130-86 win at TD Garden and a 2-0 series lead. With the MVP award not being announced until late June, there is plenty of time to celebrate the accomplishment before moving on. He also averaged 26.4 points per game.

Rookie of the Year: 76ers' Joel Embiid, Bucks' Malcolm Brogdon and 76ers' Dario Saric.

With home-court advantage gone, the Celtics face a virtual must-win Game 2 on Friday night.

Leonard has won the last two years and Green will be hoping it's his time for everything he does for the Warriors, including a game this season where he had a triple-double that didn't even include points.

Meanwhile, Indiana Pacers forward Paul George and Utah Jazz All-Star Gordon Hayward, by not making the All-NBA teams, are not eligible for the max extension this summer. The full breakdown of the All-NBA teams is below.

Fantasy Impact Westbrook is more than deserving of this award posting career-best numbers playing his first season without Kevin Durant. According to NBA.com player tracking data, Green limited opponents to 44 percent shooting at the rim, behind only Rudy Gobert and San Antonio's LaMarcus Aldridge. The 6-foot-11 forward had a number of jaw-dropping games, including the beginning of the season when he scored 50 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in the season opener, followed by 45 points and 17 rebounds in the second game of the season. If it's Gobert, the Frenchman will be recognized not only for his defensive dominance but also for his growth as an offensive player.

None of the Golden State Warriors roster were included in the first team.
