Down in Oklahoma City, they have a recurring contest during Thunder games in which a fan gets to shoot a half-court shot for the chance to win $20,000.
Many teams across the league have similar, but no one’s fans shoot as well as Oklahoma City’s. Check out this crazy stat from Ben Golliver.
Thunder fans are 5-for-22 (22.7 percent) on half-court shots since March 5.

5-22! (That’s a better percentage than Anthony Bennett is shooting so far this year. Sorry Cleveland fans.)
That would be an impressive performance from half-court from an NBA player, let alone fans picked out of the stands.
Tonight, yet another fan knocked down the half-court effort. And in addition to the $20,000, this lucky fan got to celebrate with Jay Z.
