CLAREMORE —

The Oklahoma City Thunder presented an official game-night watch party Tuesday night at Buffalo Wild Wings in Claremore. 
Fans in attendance had the opportunity to interact with Thunder mascot, Rumble the Bison, the Thunder Girls, Thunder Drummers and Storm Chasers while watching the Oklahoma City Thunder take on the Memphis Grizzlies. Thunder Emcee Katie Kurtz lead the crowd through a series of trivia games, relay races and giveaways, including autographed memorabilia and more.
“The watch party provides an opportunity for fans of all ages to experience the enthusiam and excitement of the Oklahoma City Thunder in a relaxing environment,” said Franchise Owner Ed Lynn. “People here tonight are creating memories. In the future, this is something they’ll look back on and smile about.”
He said he has previously hosted the Thunder watch parties at his restaurants in Oklahoma City, Enid and Muskogee.
“Without a doubt, the watch parties are well-received by the community, especially after how successful the team has been over the past three years.”
Lynn said he was thrilled to bring the new restaurant to Claremore and equally excited for customers in the Tulsa-Metro and Rogers County area to be able to experience the event.
Buffalo Wild Wings is located in The Market shopping center, 208- South Highway 66. For a full schedule of official Thunder watch parties, fans are encouraged to visit thunder.nba.com.
