In the few hours leading up to the Thunder's series win, Thunder Alley was on fire just as the team was.
Lindsay Nowlin says, "I'm a huge Thunder fan! I'm just excited!"
"They better be ready! I'm ready! I just can't wait to get inside," says Craig.
But the pre-game celebrations weren't without nerves.
"Win or go home," says Johnny Edmondson.
Lindsay Nowlin says, "Backs against the wall just like last game they just have to come out with the same intensity and just fight, both teams, win or go home."
Evelyn Taylor says, "This is like awesome that they made it this far!They've been a tribute to our city since they got here. So it's just an awesome thing, and us coming together as a community."
Fans took all of their energy from Thunder Alley into the Chesapeake Arena to shower the team with support.
"I think we have one of the best atmospheres of the league. I mean, we all come out and support our city and we all get into it and you can see for yourself in there that it's crazy," says Lindsay Nowlin.
Craig says, "This town would erupt if we got that championship."
