This summer is already turning into a slam dunk for Austin Mahone.

The pop star and San Antonio native will perform the National Anthem to kick off Game 1 of the NBA Finals Thursday night (9 p.m. ET), a rematch between the local Spurs and defending champs the Miami Heat.

Mahone, who recently celebrated his 18th birthday in South Beach, released his debut EP The Secret on May 27 and kicks off his North American summer tour July 25 in – where else? – his hometown of San Antonio.
