Damian Lillard

Rounding out the Second Team are Al Horford (85) of the Boston Celtics, Dejounte Murray (80) of the San Antonio Spurs, and Jimmy Butler (79) of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Holiday averaged 1.5 steals (No. 16 in the NBA) and the Pelicans held opponents to 9.1 fewer points per 100 possessions with him on the court than they did with him off, the biggest difference for any player on the team.

Davis ranked second in the National Basketball Association with 28.1 points per contest and grabbed 11.1 rebounds a game, while Lillard was fourth with 26.9 points a game and four-time scoring champion Durant ranked sixth with 26.4 a game.

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert and New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis headlined the 2017-18 NBA All-Defensive First Team announced Wednesday.

During the course of the season, Lillard was recognized for his stellar play three times as Western Conference Player of the Week and was named to the NBA All-Star Team for the third time in his career. Gobert, who had 2.3 blocks per game, earned 192 of a possible 200 points, including 94 First Team votes.
