Oklahoma City Thunder players Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have earned spots on the All-NBA first and second teams, the league announced Thursday.

Durant, who led the league in scoring for a second straight season, was named to the All-NBA First Team along with Miami's LeBron James at forward, Orlando's Dwight Howard at center and Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant and Chicago's Derrick Rose at guard.

It's the second straight season Durant was named to the first team. He averaged 27.7 points per game and was named the NBA Player of the Month in both December and April.

Westbrook was named to the second team alongside fellow guard Dwyane Wade of Miami, forwards Pau Gasol (L.A. Lakers) and Dirk Nowitzki (Dallas) and center Amar'e Stoudemire (NY Knicks).

Westbrook averaged 21.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 8.1 assists per game this season.

Oklahoma City plays Memphis in Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals Friday night in Memphis. A win would put the Thunder in the Western Conference Finals against Dallas.
