Also, Houston Rockets' James Harden (474 points, 89 First Team votes), LA Lakers' Anthony Davis (455 points, 79 First Team votes) and Dallas Mavericks' Luka Doncic (416 points, 59 First Team votes) were selected to the first team.
Davis scored 14 points in the first quarter, but the Nuggets shot almost 64 percent, with Murray's 3-pointer as time expired giving them a 38-36 lead. Players were awarded five points for each vote to the All-NBA First Team, three points for each vote to the Second Team and one point for each vote to the Third Team.
TOP PERFORMERS: LeBron James leads the Lakers with 2.2 made 3-pointers, and is averaging 25.3 points while shooting 34.8% from beyond the arc.
The lead stayed right around there for the remainder of the half, as the Lakers paraded to the foul line while Jokic, Murray and Paul Millsap went the bench with three fouls. Michael Porter Jr. had 14 points, but no other Denver players reached double figures.
Let's take a look back at the 2009 Western Conference Finals, a hard-fought series that was won in six games by the Lakers, en route to LA winning its first title since 2002.
The odds are overwhelmingly in the Lakers' favor for their Western Conference Finals matchup with the Denver Nuggets, which starts Friday night with Game 1 inside the NBA's Disney bubble. The Nuggets fell to 7-22 against the Lakers in the postseason. He has been named in the second team twice and the third team once.
Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol combined to scored 16 of the Lakers' 27 points in the final 12 minutes, and LA held Denver to 18 total points to earn a 104-93 victory. Antetokounmpo, the reigning MVP and the frontrunner to win the award again this season, was picked unanimously for the second consecutive year. He previously finished second in this season's Defensive Player of the Year voting to Antetokounmpo.
"I'm at a loss for words", LeBron James said, via Mark Medina of USA TODAY Sports.
Doncic made the First Team in just his second season in the league, which is something even James can't say about his career. "So we appreciate all the love and support back home, no doubt".
