Stephen Curry Trails For Starting All-Star Spot; DeMarcus Cousins 12th In West

The NBA released its second round of voting results for the Feb. 16 All-Star Game in New Orleans, and just like the first bunch of votes released, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry remains in third place among Western Conference guards.

Curry, who is averaging 23.6 points, 9.3 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.9 steals per game on 45 percent shooting (41.6 percent from 3-point range), is nearly 52,000 votes behind Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers for second place.

Curry has 481,698 votes to Paul’s 533,647. Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers lead Western Conference guards with 723,031 votes—or more than 120,000 per each of the six games he’s played so far this season.

Among frontcourt players, Andre Iguodala of the Warriors is ninth with 145,089 votes and David Lee is 13th with 89,858.
