For the third time this season, a fan has hit a $20,000 half-court shot at an Oklahoma City Thunder basketball game.
Let me recap that for you.
Not one … not two … but THREE fans have hit this high-pressure, high-dollar basket.
Sunday night’s lucky winner was 26-year-old Larry Hill of Oklahoma City, a school counselor who was attending his very first Thunder game. After making the shot, Hill immediately ran and jumped into the arms of the Thunder mascot, Rumble, as the crowd at the Chesapeake Energy Arena cheered.
The Thunder’s official Facebook page said it all.
“It happened again!”
It was just another part of a festive night that saw the Thunder take a 1-0 series lead over the Houston Rockets in their first-round playoff matchup with a 120-91 blowout.
