They’re the No. 1 and No. 2 players in the world. They’re also 1-2 in the latest round of NBA All-Star voting.

With 854,105 votes, Miami Heat forward LeBron James leads the way after the second returns of the NBA All-Star Balloting. Kevin Durant is right behind James with 850,728 votes — tops in the Western Conference.

Durant has more than double the votes of the next closest player in the conference (Dwight Howard — 408,623). Russell Westbrook is sixth among backcourt players in the West.

Balloting concludes on Jan. 20, with the All-Star game Feb. 16 in New Orleans.
