EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Brook Lopez's best season as a pro resulted in his first All-Star appearance, but it wasn't good enough to land the Nets' center on either one of the league's three All-NBA teams.

Lopez received a total of 132 points, by far the most of any player who wasn't selected. The 7-footer also collected seven first-team votes. However, he was beaten out by Tim Duncan, Marc Gasol and Dwight Howard, who respectfully landed on the first, second and third teams.

Lopez averaged 19.4 points and 6.9 rebounds in the regular season, and took things to another level in their first-round series against the Bulls, poured in 22.3 points and snaring 7.4 rebounds.

Deron Williams picked up six total points.

Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony was named to second team.
