Warriors guard Stephen Curry was named to the All-NBA second team Wednesday, marking the first All-NBA selection of his career.

Curry had the most votes of any player on the second team and barely missed out joining the first team that consisted of Houston's James Harden, the Los Angeles Clippers' Chris Paul, Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant, Miami's LeBron James and Chicago's Joakim Noah.

Curry was joined on the second team by the Clippers' Blake Griffin, Minnesota's Kevin Love, Houston's Dwight Howard and San Antonio's Tony Parker.

Curry, 26, appeared on 123 of the 125 ballots, receiving 65 first-team votes, 53 second-team votes and five third-team votes from the panel of sports writers and broadcasters. New Warriors coach Steve Kerr, the former TNT broadcaster, was among those to give Curry a second-team vote.

Curry's fifth season in the NBA was highlighted by being voted in as a starter in the All-Star Game in a season. He led the NBA with 261 made 3-pointers and averaged career highs of 24 points and 8.5 assists.

The Warriors, after seeing David Lee make the All-NBA third team last season, have their first All-NBA players in consecutive seasons since Tim Hardaway won recognition in 1992-93 and Latrell Sprewell made the first team in 1993-94.
