OKLAHOMA CITY — Thunder fans were on pins and needles outside the Chesapeake Arena Tuesday night as they waited to hear the winning ticket numbers.
From 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. people could register for a lottery to win tickets to the first NBA finals game; 25 pairs were given away.
Another 75 pairs of tickets were sold at discounted prices.
At 6:30 p.m. they announced the winners.
People like Chase Philips couldn’t believe their luck.
“It’s a bucket list thing. I’ve got two tickets. I’m pumped. Couldn’t be happier. Ridiculous, I’m so happy,” he said.
The seats are in Love’s Loud City.
Fans should look for similar opportunities Thursday night.
