Timberwolves donate another 2,000 tickets for game two
Inspired by the over 15,000 fans who attended game one of the WNBA Finals and watched the Minnesota Lynx win, new Timberwolves head coach Rick Adelman and president of basketball operations David Kahn purchased an additional 2,000 upper-level tickets for Game 2 on Wednesday night. All of the tickets will be donated to charitable organizations in the Twin Cities.
They bought 2,000 tickets for game one and gave 1,000 away to fans and the other 1,000 to charity groups in the area.
â€œRick and I are thrilled that so many fans were able to take advantage of these tickets and make it out to the game last night," said Kahn on Monday. "The crowd was fantastic and we’re hopeful that even more great Minnesota basketball fans will have a chance to come out to Target Center on Wednesday and recreate that atmosphere.â€
Game two of the WNBA Finals between the Lynx and the Atlanta Dream is slated for Wednesday night at Target Center. Coming off a historic 2011 regular season, the Lynx, the No. 1 seed in the 2011 WNBA Playoffs advanced to the franchiseâ€™s first-ever WNBA Finals after 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.
