Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio has teamed up with the Lynx as they face off with the Seattle Storm in this upcoming Tuesday's deciding Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals. In support of the Lynx, Rubio has purchased 500 upper level tickets for Tuesday, and hes offering them to fans to free. Beginning Monday at 8 a.m., the first 250 fans that call in to 612-673-8400 will have the opportunity to sit in Rubio's seats; limit two per customer.

Im incredibly proud to support the Lynx, said Rubio, who attended Game 1 at Target Center on Friday night. I know firsthand the impact that fans can have on a game, especially in the deciding games of series. Its very important for fans to show up and create a homecourt advantage for the team as they attempt to repeat as champions.

The Lynx finished the regular season a WNBA-best 27-7 for the second consecutive year, earning the first overall seed in the WNBA and homecourt advantage throughout the 2012 WNBA Playoffs, presented by Boost Mobile. After winning Game 1 at Target Center on Friday night, Minnesota dropped a 2OT thriller with the Storm in Seattle on Sunday evening to even the series. The deciding Game 3 is on Tuesday, October 2 at 8 p.m. CT on ESPN2.
