Only two weeks after a Thunder fan won $20,000 for hitting a half-court shot, another fan did exactly the same thing Sunday night during the Thunder's game against the Portland TrailBlazers. A 24-year-old named Justin Dougherty from Missouri won the cash after hitting MidFirst Bank's $20,000 dollar shot.

Dougherty even received a congratulatory hug from Kevin Durant following the exciting shot. Dougherty is a sports reporter from Springfield, Missouri who was in town with his girlfriend who bought him Thunder tickets to celebrate his birthday.
