Two brothers at the Indiana Pacers game Sunday thought they were having a pretty great night when they were chosen to participate in an in-game contest. But that was just the beginning of it.
After winning $300 in a shooting contest during a timeout, the two young Pacers fans -- identified by NBA.com as Aaron Rector and his brother, Brandon -- were surprised by their brother, Justin, a soldier who had just returned home from Afghanistan, the site says.
Check out the awesome moment in the video below.
According to NBA.com, the Rector brothers and their family were able to enjoy dinner together after the reunion, and then got to catch the rest of the Pacers-Jazz contest while sitting courtside. The site says that when Aaron Rector was voted to take part in the in-game contest by fellow fans, Pacers executives were able to use his selection as cover to pull off the surprise reunion.
