Video: Hinder guitartist Mark King plays acoustic national anthem before Thunder-Spurs game

by Brandy McDonnell Published: April 5, 2013


Oklahoma City rockers Hinder played the halftime show during the Oklahoma City Thunder’s game Thursday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

But the best musical moment of the game came when Hinder guitarist Mark King delivered an excellent rendition of our national anthem on acoustic guitar.

As far as basketball goes, there were many memorable moments as the Thunder defeated the San Antonio Spurs 100-88. Then, our boys in blue quickly departed for Indiana, where they will be taking on the Pacers at 7 tonight. The game will be broadcast on Fox Sports Oklahoma.

The Thunder will be back at The ‘Peake for a noon tip-off Sunday vs. the New York Knicks. That game will be shown on ABC.

And you thought your weekend was busy!

Thunder up!
