Wednesday’s sold-out NBA preseason game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Dallas Mavericks was the highest-attended event in Intrust Bank Arena history, the venue said Friday.

The arena reached its maximum capacity of 15,004 during the game.

The Thunder defeated the Mavericks 88-76. It was the first NBA game the arena had put on. The venue opened in January 2010.

The second highest-attended event at the arena was a concert by George Strait and Reba McEntire, which attracted a crowd of 14,227 in February 2010.
