Their plan was to watch the game outside at the official Nuggets tailgate party. Almost as a throwaway, they decided to test their luck.

“We got here and we registered for free tickets,” Kim said.

Then, wouldn’t you know it, they won.

“I’m excited! I’m ready for this game,” she added.

On a day especially for mothers and grandmothers, these two Nuggets fans will be able to create a memory together they will never forget. A special day for Kim instantly got so much sweeter for her and her granddaughter.

“(It’s) even more special. I get to spend it with her.”

As the party rolled on, outside of the Pepsi Center, ticket holders started steaming into the arena, including Kim and Lakota, who only had one more mother’s day wish…

“The Nuggets are going to win!” said Kim. “Go Nuggets!” Lakota added.
