Some of Oklahoma's own created their own version of Thunder Alley for Tuesday night's game against the Miami Heat.

Dozens of Pawhuska residents put on their Harden beards and their best Thunder-wear, and sat out in lawn chairs in the middle of the street in front of the big screen TV in the storefront of Hometown TV and Appliance.

It all started with Ryan Redcorn.

"We set out some lawn chairs for the last game, and there were some other people that just showed up, too," Redcorn said. "Now, it's grown into this."

Redcorn said he asked Jody Martin, the owner of the electronics store, if he would leave his TV on for the last game against the San Antonio Spurs.

"All of a sudden, here's a picture of the front of my store on Facebook and it's already got 34 comments and over 200 likes," Martin said. "And we got to talking and we thought this is big, this could be something really nice for the community."
