Hawks’ Millsap gets points in All-NBA Team voting


James Harden, LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, Kawhi Leonard and Anthony Davis were named to the All-NBA first team as announced by the league Thursday.

The All-NBA teams were chosen by a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters. The media voted for All-NBA first, second and third teams by position with points awarded on a 5-3-1 basis.

As a matter of policy, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution does not take part in voting.

Harden was the highest vote-getter with 500 total points, getting all 100 first-team votes. James and Westbrook each received 498 points, with 99 first-team and 1 second-team vote. Leonard had 490 points and Davis had 343 points.

The All-NBA second team consisted of Rudy Gobert (339 points), Stephen Curry (290), Giannis Antetokounmpo (258), Kevin Durant (239) and Isaiah Thomas (236).

The All-NBA third team consisted of Draymond Green (134), John Wall (125), Jimmy Butler (102), DeMar DeRozan (62) and DeAndre Jordan (54).

The Hawks’ Paul Millsap received a total of three points. Others receiving votes were Karl-Anthony Towns (50), Chris Paul (49), Marc Gasol (48), DeMarcus Cousins, (42), Paul George (40), Gordon Hayward (27), Hassan Whiteside (18), Kyrie Irving (14), Klay Thompson (14), Nikola Jokic (12), Damian Lillard (12), LaMarcus Aldridge (1), Blake Griffin (1) and Al Horford (1).
