NBA FINALS — Bill Hader, David Boren, Adrian Peterson and Craig Robinson among famous faces at Chesapeake Arena for Thursday's Game 2.

Sara Evans was especially excited to sing the national anthem Thursday night — because it was her fourth wedding anniversary. Evans is married to former Alabama star quarterback Jay Barker.

“We decided that it would be a perfect date night to come sing the anthem — just a little bit of work — and then watch the game,” Evans said.

Evans hinted before her performance that she liked to drag out certain notes to “try to show off,” and she definitely did that. Her anthem was much longer than Jessica Sanchez's was on Tuesday night. Beautifully sung, but a smidgen over the top.


@TheOfficialShaq That's crazy how OKC fans don't sit down till thunder score

@BrennanClay24 I feel like the Thunder know they can come back from like 20 ..soo they do it to actually challenge themselves ..

@SN_Greenberg I'll stick with Thunder in six. They played their worst game of the series tonight. They can win 2x in Miami


8:09 Vicki: geez, why do we ALWAYS start slow???

8:23 Tess Tess: They are sending Harden out...maybe his magical, mystical beard powers can save the day...

9:07 JL: OKC is playing playground basketball with erratic passes and lack of control drives to the basket

9:53: JA35: If it was another team, I would've given up...but not the Thunder....

10:17: BB in San Diego: Bosh has been the difference so far tonight

10:27 Brandon: the only way we win this is if we get stops, this is crunch time....this is the moment you make stops

10:44: TEN: OH...MY....

10:49: BB in San Diego: Going in you had to know that you guys would need to win on the Heat's floor one war or the other
