The San Antonio Spurs won Game 1 of the 2014 NBA Finals 110-95 against the Miami Heat, and one fan sitting courtside turned quite a few heads during the game.

A man dressed as Jesus was sitting courtside, in a full wig, robe and sunglasses. Because of course. He might have been regretting the decision by the end of the game, though, as the air conditioning was malfunctioning at AT&T Center on Thursday night, with temperatures near the court exceeding 90 degrees, according to ABC's Doris Burke during the live broadcast.

It looked like the man was a Spurs fan, but I'm guessing his favorite player on the court might have been Ray Allen, also known as Jesus Shuttlesworth.
