Lightning strikes for lucky Thunder fans
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.
