Excitement for the Oklahoma City Thunder is in full effect.

As the team enters another round of the playoffs, volunteers worked to place t-shirts on every seat in the arena.

More than 18,000 shirts blanket the arena for the first game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Volunteers with "I Believe," a Baptist outreach program dedicated to evangelism at big events, spent three to four hours helping place the shirts on the back of the chairs.

Rusty McMullen is one of 150 volunteers at the Chesapeake Energy Arena. McMullen and Baptist volunteers say they are praying for more than a win.

"I'm going to be focusing on the person that might be sitting in that chair and asking the Lord to do great things in their life," he said.

The volunteers say it's nice to give back and support their favorite team.
