The NBA today released the results of the All-Defensive team voting.  Clippers Chris Paul and DeAndre Jodan were both voted onto the first team, Paul as the 2nd guard and Jordan as the center.  They were joined on the team by Kawhi Leonard and Draymond Green (forwards) and Avery Bradley (1st place guard).

Paul finished with 148 points, just behind Bradley at 149.  The third-place guard, Tony Allen, finished with 121 points.

DeAndre Jordan finished with 137 points, leading Hassan Whiteside's 126 points, which left him on the All-Defensive Second team.

The rest of the second team featured Paul Millsap, Paul George, and Jimmy Butler.

Now, we'll wait to hear the results of All-NBA team voting, where both Paul and Jordan will likely make one of the 3 teams.  Jordan is a candidate for All-NBA 1st team as a center, while it would be harder for Paul to make it due to the depth at the guard position.

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute was the only other Clipper to receive a point, being put on the second team by one voter.
