OKLAHOMA CITY -

Thunder forward Kevin Durant and guard Russell Westbrook were named to the All-NBA first and second teams, respectively, earlier Thursday by the NBA.

This is Durant's third consecutive season to be named to the All-NBA first team, after becoming just the seventh player in NBA history to capture three consecutive scoring crowns. During the season Durant led the Thunder with 18 doubles-doubles and on Feb. 19 vs. Denver, he recorded a career-best 51 points. He also was named NBA player of the month in February and March.

The fifth-year forward from the University of Texas received 117 first place votes and finished second in All-NBA team voting after tallying 591 votes.

Russell Westbrook received All-NBA second team honors for a second straight season after securing five first place votes and 239 total points.

Westbrook currently maintains the longest active games played streak in the NBA (312 games) and registered the fifth highest scoring average in the NBA (23.6 PPG) while leading the Thunder in assists (5.5 APG) during the season.

Durant and Westbrook became the highest scoring duo in franchise history in 2011-2012, combining for a total of 51.6 points per game.

The All-NBA teams were chosen by a panel of 120 sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada. The media voted for All-NBA first, second and third teams by position with points awarded on a 5-3-1 basis. The balloting was tabulated by the independent accounting firm of Ernst & Young LLP.
