Here's your feel-good story of the day. A high school teacher named Heath Kufahl from Oklahoma hit a half-court shot at halftime of the Lakers/Thunder game last night to win $20,000. And, it sounds like the windfall couldn't have come at a better time for Kufahl. According to Tulsa World, Kufahl's wife was diagnosed with cancer late last year and he's been supporting a family of eight since then on his teacher's salary. So, the 20 grand will come in handy when it comes to medical bills and getting his wife more treatment in the near future. It makes his shot all the more impressive.
