NBA Minnesota Timberwolves offering tickets to 2,000 fans for game one of the WNBA Finals
From the Lynx:
New Timberwolves Head Coach Rick Adelman and President of Basketball Operations David Kahn are teaming up to send Lynx fans to the WNBA Finals. With the Lynx’s historic season culminating in the franchiseâ€™s first WNBA Finals appearance, Adelman and Kahn have purchased upper-level 2,000 tickets for Game 1. The first 1,000 seats for the game will be available to fans (limit two per customer), while the remaining 1,000 tickets will be donated to charitable organizations in the Twin Cities.
The Lynx will open their five-game series against Atlanta on Sunday night at Target Center (7:30 p.m. tip). To take advantage of Adelman and Kahn’s special WNBA Finals ticket offer, call the Lynx offices at 612-673-8400. Game 1 tickets are available now (while supplies last).
"I’ve been fortunate enough to coach in the Finals twice in my career, and have seen firsthand how much excitement playoff basketball can generate," Timberwolves Head Coach Rick Adelman said. "I’m thrilled to be here in Minnesota and to extend this opportunity to basketball fans in the area to come out and support the Lynx."
â€œThe Lynx have had an outstanding season thus far and have brought fantastic energy to Target Center," said David Kahn, Timberwolves President of Basketball Operations. "I hope the great basketball fans in the Twin Cities pack the building these next two games and help the Lynx bring a title back to Minnesota.â€
Coming off a historic 2011 regular season, the Lynx, the No. 1 seed in the 2011 WNBA Playoffs presented by Boost Mobile, advanced to the franchiseâ€™s first-ever WNBA Finals by virtue of a 2-0 series win over the Phoenix Mercury in the Western Conference Finals. Minnesotaâ€™s 27 regular-season wins were a franchise record and one shy of a single-season league record.
