During that stretch, the team also had the best defensive rating (97.5), the best net rating (10.8), the lowest opponent scoring average (97.4) and the lowest opponent field goal percentage (43.1 percent) in the league. Thirty-one other players earned votes and 17 of those picked up first-team votes, with Chris Paul coming the closest to getting a spot on the second team. However, his impact in the games he did play was obviously notable enough for him to receive the most All-Defensive First Team votes, and I believe it will be enough for him to receive Defensive Player of the Year as well.

Here's a look at the complete list of 2017-18 All-NBA First, Second and Third teams, courtesy of the NBA.

The second team was forwards Giannis Antetokounmpo of Milwaukee and LaMarcus Aldridge of San Antonio, Philadelphia center Joel Embiid, and guards Russell Westbrook of Oklahoma City and DeMar DeRozan of Toronto. Davis had 73 first-place votes and 163 total points.
