Not only did Brad Brucker, an Oklahoma City Thunder fan, win $20,000 making a half-court shot, he got props from Jay Z, who was at the game with Beyonce. Jay Z congratulated Brucker as he walked off the court. 

Here's another look at the shot:

The Thunder tweeted out a quote from Brucker along with a cool picture:

Thunder star Kevin Durant weighed in on the recent success of the fans:

KD on the halfcourt shots: "That's two in a row now. We might go broke with these guys making these halfcourt shots now."

He also gave his thoughts on Jay Z and Beyonce being at the game:

KD on Jay Z and Beyoncé being at the game: "That's crazy. I don't even know how to describe that right there."

Oddly enough, this was the second time this week that a Thunder fan drilled a half-court shot.

SB Nation's Ben Golliver tweeted out an incredible stat:

Thunder fans are 5-for-22 (22.7 percent) on half-court shots since March 5.

Looks like there's some talent in the stands in Oklahoma City.
