Klay Thompson is going to the All-Star Game.

The Warriors’ shooting guard, who electrified the NBA with his record-setting 37-point third quarter in Friday’s game against Sacramento, was named a Western Conference All-Star reserve Thursday.

Thompson joins Stephen Curry, the leading vote-getter for the All-Star game, and coach Steve Kerr in representing the Warriors in the Feb. 15 game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Joining Thompson as the West reserves are Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City), Russell Westbrook (Oklahoma City), LaMarcus Aldridge (Portland), James Harden (Houston), Tim Duncan (San Antonio) and Chris Paul (Los Angeles Clippers).

For the East, Al Horford, Paul Millsap and Jeff Teague have been picked as reserves, giving the sizzling Atlanta Hawks three selections.

The Miami Heat also had two reserves selected in Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving and first-timer Jimmy Butler of Chicago were the other players announced to the East roster.
