OKLAHOMA CITY - The stakes are raised for the Thunder to advance to the Western Conference Finals.

Some Oklahoma City firefighters have placed a friendly wager with their Los Angeles County counterparts.

Many firefighters collect station t-shirts from other fire departments from around the country. As a payoff, firefighters from the losing team's city will have to send their station t-shirts for members of the station from the winning city.

If the Thunder wins, our firefighters will receive t-shirts from the LA station 8.

The Oklahoma City Thunder will try to take a 3-0 series lead over the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference finals at 9:30 p.m. Friday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
