The old saying goes that "lightning never strikes twice."
Evidently, the same can't be said about thunder.
For the second time in a month, a fan has hit a half-court shot at an Oklahoma City Thunder game to win 20,000.
On Sunday night, Justin Dougherty, a television reporter from Springfield, MO, was selected to participate in the Thunder's 3rd quarter shooting contest.
Dougherty tweeted a picture of the letter showing that he was selected for the contest before taking the court.
"Prayer Request: I'm about to shoot free throws at the end of the 3rd quarter of tonight's @okcthunder game ohcrap," Dougherty tweeted.

Half-court shot, that's another story.
Dougherty drained the shot and the Chesapeake Energy Arena went nuts. Dougherty ran off the court, then returned, only to be tackled by Thunder superstar Kevin Durant in celebration.
Dougherty was given the tickets by his girlfriend as a birthday present.
Needless to say, this is on...
