OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Oklahoma City Thunder looks to send the Lakers on vacation until next season with a playoff win Monday night.

Even if you don't have a ticket to the sold out game, you can still enjoy the excitement at the arena.

Thunder Alley will once again be packed with thousands of fans.

The crew putting up the banners, billboards, and basketball hoops were brought in just for the playoffs. They say the Thunder Alley set up is rare in the NBA

"you see smaller things, but nothing to this magnitude," said Allison Stier with Martin Sports Entertainment.

Crews started setting everything up at 8 a.m. on Monday. They hope to have it all taken down by 1 a.m. Tuesday.
