Average attendance for the Timberwolves last season was 15,242. Attendance for Game 1 of the WNBA finals between the Lynx and Atlanta was 15,258 -- a figure surely helped by the 2,000 upper level tickets purchased by Wolves boss David Kahn and new head coach Rick Adelman. Those tickets were split evenly between fans calling in and charities. For Game 2 on Wednesday, the duo is buying another 2,000 tickets. This time, they are all going to charities. Can Kahn and Adelman help the Lynx once again outdraw the Wolves?
“Rick 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," Kahn said in the press release. "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.”
