MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Looking for a ticket to watch the Lynx in Game 1 of the WNBA Finals on Sunday? Flip Saunders might be your answer.

Timberwolves officials said Saunders bought 500 upper level tickets for Sunday night’s game at Target Center. It’s a rematch of last year’s WNBA Finals, where the Atlanta Dream won the best-of-five series 3-1. Saunders is offering his tickets to the first 250 fans who call into (612) 673-8400 at 8 a.m. Tuesday.

The Lynx earned their spot in this year’s WNBA Finals for the third straight year by sweeping the Phoenix Mercury to win the Western Conference title. The Lynx finished the regular season with the league’s best record at 26-8.
