It was the second time in Paul’s career that he has been named to the first team. He was joined on the All-NBA first team by Miami’s LeBron James, Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant, Orlando’s Dwight Howard and the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant.

Paul also made the NBA’s first-team All-Defensive team.

Griffin made the All-NBA team for the first time in his two-year career.

He was joined on the second team by San Antonio’s Tony Parker, Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook, Minnesota’s Kevin Love and the Lakers’ Andrew Bynum.

Paul and Griffin helped the Clippers reach the second round of the Western Conference playoffs for the first time since 2006.
