Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce President Roy Williams says a Thunder appearance in the NBA Finals would bring incredible world exposure to the city.

The Finals have a worldwide network audience, and Williams says it would be invaluable for tourism.

"Oklahoma City has some stuff that a lot of communities don't have, and would be the envy of having, so when they pan and show the canals and Bricktown, and The Memorial, the river, that's gonna make people think that wouldn't be a bad place to visit," Williams said.

Charles Stout has owned the Bricktown Brewery for 20 years. He says Wednesday's win is in the bag.

"I think we'll grind it out, I'm thinking 105-95, pull away a little bit in the end," Stout said.

The Thunder will play against the San Antonio Spurs at 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.
