Westbrook averaged 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists becoming the first player since Oscar Robertson in the 1961-62 season to average a triple-double for an entire season.

Cleveland's LeBron James made the All-NBA first team for a record-tying 11th time, matching Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone.

The Most Valuable Player award will come down to Russell Westbrook, James Harden and Kawhi Leonard.

Finalists for other awards, including MVP, Rookie of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, Sixth Man, most improved player and Coach of the Year will be announced Friday night. According to ESPN Stats & Info, he was the first player to score at least 90 points in the first two games of a season since Michael Jordan in 1986-87. They will be announced on June 26 on the season-ending awards show on TNT.

Harden made the First team for the third time in four years while Davis, Westbrook and Leonard each made their second appearance on the list.

nROOKIE OF THE YEAR: Dario Saric, Joel Embiid, Malcom Brogdan. James had the game-high 30 points in the contest and helped Cleveland extend its winning streak to 10 games.

Game 3 is on Sunday night.

LeBron James is playing arguably the best basketball of his career in his 14th season in the league that has the Cavaliers on pace to be back in the NBA Finals for a third straight year with an opportunity to defend their NBA title.

Defensive Player of the Year: Spurs' Kawhi Leonard, Jazz's Rudy Gobert, and Warriors' Draymond Green. "I mean, I've seen it all.I've just got to be more aggressive, make plays, make shots, and go from there".

"So many great players, so many players had great seasons", Durant said. Wall will probably best be remembered this season for his game-winning 3-pointer vs. the Boston Celtics in a must-win Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. The Minnesota Timberwolves center averaged 25.1 points, 12.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.3 blocks per game. Popovich has won the award three times (2003, 2012, 2014). Antetokounmpo was voted to start the All-Star Game at midseason and the Greek Freak could add another honor after it. Jokic was a creative playmaking center for a Denver team that ranked behind just Golden State and Houston in scoring.
