An Oklahoma City Thunder fan from Muskogee went home from Tuesday’s game with an extra $20,000 in his pocket.

Johnnie Durosette swished a half court shot to win $20,000 courtesy of MidFirst Bank.

“I was nervous a little bit,” he said. “It looked good, then it went in and everyone started going crazy.”

Durosette said he got the tickets for the game for Christmas.

“We’re thrilled for Johnnie,” said Susan Peck, the director of sponsorships for MidFirst Bank. “Great way to start off the new year for sure.”

Durosette had another reason to go home happy. The Thunder scored a franchise record 150 points in a 150 -117 game with the Boston Celtics.
