Oklahoma City brought the Thunder experience to Fayetteville.
The Oklahoma City Thunder, along with their staff, are taking part in community events across Fayetteville ahead of Friday’s official watch party at JJ’s Grill.
The team hosted an event Thursday at the Fayetteville Boys and Girls Club, where the Thunder Girls, Storm Chasers, Thunder Drummers and Rumble combined different physical fitness stations, photos, autographs and performances.
“We’re excited to be outside of our market here in Fayetteville, bringing the Thunder experience,” said Michelle Matthews, manager of Thunder Basketball Programs. “We’ll be doing lots of activations around the community, spreading that Thunder love.”
The team is set to host other private events across Fayetteville.
Oklahoma City will take on the Miami Heat Friday in Miami at 7 p.m. Central Time.
