If you tweet at Minnesota Lynx head coach Cheryl Reeve, there's a decent chance you'll get a message back from her. 

Case and point, this Lynx fan, Stacie, tweeted about her troubles buying tickets online to see the Lynx play the Sparks in Los Angeles in Tuesday night's WNBA playoff game.

Reeve saw the tweet, and responded accordingly.

Instead of taking advantage of the gracious offer from Reeve and asking for a bunch of tickets, she simply said she's in need of just one. Of course, Reeve hooked her up, leaving Stacie stunned with excitement.

Making the story even better is that the Sparks responded to her tweet and gave her a link to a working ticket website, but Reeve one-upped them by putting a ticket in her name at the arena's will call window. 

The Lynx and Sparks play Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. and the game will be televised on ESPN2. The winner advances to the second round and the loser's season is over.
