Green Country is Thunder blue tonight.

It was a rough first half for the Thunder, but the fans Fat Daddy's Pub and Grille can't give up on their team just yet.

There's a storm brewing in the state tonight.

"Every day, I'm Thunderin," Kelsey Higley said.

Green Country is drowning in sea of blue, and Thunder fans are fired up.

" I expect us to win, we are going to win this game," Higley said.

The Thunder is playing in uncharted territory, on the brink of their first NBA Finals appearance. The San Antonio Spurs are the only thing standing in their way.

"We're gonna win tonight we're not going back to San Antonio, we do not want to go back there, we're gonna win," Terry Ambrose said.

It was standing room only at Fat Daddy's, the pub has become the ‘it' spot for the Blue Alliance watch parties, the team's official fan club.

"It's so overwhelming how much energy and how much support that the Thunder has from everyone in Oklahoma," Kylie McFerrin said.

And fans of every age, too.

"They have really good players there, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, good shooters," Tommy Henson said.

Really good players, but even better fans, because whether in the you're an Oklahoman in the east, west or somewhere in between...

"Even though the team is in Oklahoma City, it's really a team for the entire state, I mean they represent the state whole-heartedly," Blue Alliance Jenks Chapter Captain Daniels said.

Thunder fans, like their team, rise together as one.
