The Golden State Warriors' backcourt duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson highlight a group of five players who plan to participate in next month's All-Star 3-point contest, Yahoo! Sports has reported.

Atlanta's Kyle Korver, Portland's Wesley Matthews, and the Los Angeles Clippers' J.J. Redick have also decided to compete, according to the report, which cited league sources.

The group makes up five of the top seven shooters in the NBA in 3-pointers made, with Matthews' 138 leading the league.

James Harden of the Houston Rockets with 122 and Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers with 120 are fifth and sixth. Harden leads the NBA in scoring average at 27.6 points per game.

Korver, shooting 53 percent, tops the NBA in 3-point accuracy with Thompson in third at 46 percent.

Curry made a late surge to pass LeBron James as the overall leading vote-getter for the All-Star Game and will start for the West.

The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., is hosting this year's NBA All-Star Weekend, set for Feb. 13-15.
