Utah Jazz: Rudy Gobert makes all-NBA defensive first team

Utah Jazz: Rudy Gobert makes all-NBA defensive first team

While Bradley played some spectacular defense against the likes of Jimmy Butler and John Wall during Boston's playoff run, he did miss 27 games due to injury during the regular season, which likely cost him a spot on one of the two All-Defensive teams.

The Pelicans big man was named second team on the NBA's All-Defensive Team. Gobert (Utah) was next in line with 97 first-team and two second-team votes, with Leonard (San Antonio) receiving 93 first-team and six second-team votes.

This season, Roberson was among the best defensive players in the National Basketball Association. This might signal that Warriors' star has the edge over Gobert for Defensive Player of the Year, but we'll have to wait till Monday night to find out.

Green, who turned 30 on June 22, is the only guard in the National Basketball Association to have at least 50 steals and 50 blocks in each of the last five seasons.

Rounding out the first team are L.A. Clippers guard Chris Paul and Houston guard Patrick Beverley.

The Wagner High School alum averaged just over a steal and block per game. He was also a 2nd team pick during the 2014-'15 season.

Leonard and Green anchored a Spurs defense that allowed 98.1 points per game, second best in the league, and held opponents under 100 points in 44 contests.

Beverley was third amongst guards in charges taken, sixth in the league.

The Spurs now have eight players in its franchise history who have been named to All-Defensive teams.
